I see a lot of homonym confusion (to/too and the like), and a few small issues with the dialogue (said bookisms et al), but nothing really significant.
This is very good. I know it hasn't been updated in awhile, but it's always nice to read a medical professional's take on the apocalypse and I'd really love to see how Sam's adventure plays out. In fact, I might have to ask you a few questions for my own work.
Just a few suggestions: feed and farm supply stores often carry broad-spectrum antibiotics, and might be among the last places that people would think to loot. Though honestly even those probably wouldn't have much worth taking this late into the war. Best option might be to start looking for herbal remedies.
Pine needles and sweet gum bark can be brewed into a tea as a treatment for the flu; both contain shikimic acid, a key ingredient in Tamiflu. Willow bark has salicylic acid, same as aspirin. The tannic acid from leached acorns has antiviral and antiseptic properties. Wild garlic, wild onions and wild leeks/ramps are antibiotics (be careful here; a lot of poisonous plants look like members of Genus Allium, but none smell like them). There are many others of course, but those are just a few of the basics.

This is very cool. I would be interested to see how they would deal with a flu epidemic without the aid of medication, and also how this Sam character would be able to save herself and Tom from the mechs! Keep it going!
