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. The best way to prevent seasonal flu is by getting a seasonal flu vaccination each year. Each year in the United States on average, 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; on average, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications, and; about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications.




Prevent Getting and Spreading the Seasonal Flu

  • Get a seasonal flu shot when available
  • Stay home from work or school
  • Cover your cough with your arm or tissue
  • Wash your hands often and use alcohol–based hand sanitizer (60% alcohol)
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Avoid close contact with sick people



Stay Informed!


“When” to get a flu shot?:

“Getting the vaccine as soon as it is available will provide protection if the flu season comes early. You can get the vaccine as long as illness is occurring in your community. Influenza can occur at any time, but most influenza occurs from November through May. In recent seasons, most infections have occurred in January and February.   Getting vaccinated in December, or even later, will still be beneficial in most years.”  It takes up to 2 weeks for protection to develop after the shot. Protection lasts about a year. Source: CDC




Who should get a flu shot?:

All people 6 months and older should get a flu shot.
