In a new episode of the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, the topic is flu. What can you do today to prevent or treat this year's flu?

More than 6,000 people have died from flu complications, including 39 children, as of mid-January. The flu vaccine is still the best defense against the illness. And if you get the shot but still end up with the flu bug, there are anti-viral treatments that can help. 

Dr. Gregory Poland, director of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, shares advice on this week's Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast.
