Influenza (flu) is a serious and contagious disease caused by influenza virus that can lead to hospitalization and in some occasions, death. Flu symptoms usually last for a few days and can include fever, sore throat, chills, fatigue, cough, headache and muscle or body aches.
Certain people are at greater risk for serious complications if they get the flu. This includes older people, young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease).
You may be able to pass the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Most adults may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to five to seven days after becoming sick.
The “seasonal flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.
