    • Description:
      Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at greater risk for serious complications if they get the flu. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.

      In 2009-2010, a new and different flu virus (called 2009 H1N1) spread worldwide. During the 2010-2011 flu season, CDC expects the 2009 H1N1 virus to cause illness again along with other influenza viruses. Outbreaks of the seasonal flu usually occur during the late fall through early spring. In a typical year, approximately 5 to 20 percent of the population gets the seasonal flu. CDC recommends a three step approach to fighting flu: Vaccination, everyday good hygiene, and the correct use of antiviral drugs if recommended by a patient’s doctor.
