Really Sick - Might be the flu?

Patient : My boyfriend is sick. I think he has a cold or maybe even the flu? He's felt really sick for about 24 hrs. and it happened suddenly. Do you have any suggestions? He's already been to the doctors yesterday and they said it was just allergies. It's clearly not allergies. He can barely get up from his bed. I'm the only one to take care of him so what should I do? Btw we have both been vaccinated for the flu.
