INFLUENZA - "The Flu"

General Information

Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses, causing mild to severe illness.  Those at risk for complications are older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions.   The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.
