Seasonal Influenza

Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Certain groups are at higher risk for serious flu complications such as the elderly, young children, and those who are pregnant, obese, immune-compromised, and those who have diabetes, chronic lung and heart disease, or other chronic diseases.

Vaccination is the best protection against the flu
