About the Flu
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. Flu illnesses may range from mild to severe, and may even result in death in the most extreme cases. Certain individuals may be at high risk for developing complications from the flu, including children under age 5, pregnant women, older adults and individuals with certain medical conditions.
Flu symptoms may include:
- Fever and fever-like chills
- Sore throat
- Runny and/or stuffy nose
- Muscle and body aches
- Vomiting and/or diarrhea (more common in children than adults)
The best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated as early as possible during the flu season, which usually begins in October and can last through May.

This year’s flu vaccine will protect against the three influenza viruses that are indicated to be the most common during the season: influenza A (H1N1), influenza A (H3N2) and influenza B.
