Shortage of flu treatment drug
Updated: Tuesday, January 15 2013, 11:55 AM EST
As the flu virus spikes, patients say they're having a hard time getting medicine to fight it.
Hospitals and pharmacies around the country are reporting a shortage of the drug Tamiflu.
In fact, many places don't have any of it.
Experts say ten times more people got sick last month than average and they believe the trend will continue.
Tamiflu doesn't protect from the flu; it helps people feel better, faster.
