Most people have had the flu at least once. They usually get better with rest, but some people are vulnerable to severe complications.

Who’s at risk?

The flu, or influenza, is a common, contagious respiratory virus that circulates predominately in the fall and winter. Symptoms include sore throat, fever, nausea and fatigue. Most people get better after resting for a week or two, but in some cases, influenza can lead to hospitalization or death.

Some people are at higher risk of experiencing complications from the flu:

Young children
Pregnant women
Elderly patients
People with respiratory illnesses (COPD and asthma)
Cancer patients or others with compromised immune systems
Those with diabetes

In these populations, getting the flu can be a matter of life or death, which is why it’s important for you to take preventative measures. Hand washing with soap and warm water can minimize the virus’s spread. Another way is getting an annual influenza vaccination, or flu shot.
