The Center for Disease Control recommends that everyone age 6-months and older get the flu vaccine each year. Seasonal flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. It spreads between people and can cause mild to severe illness. In some severe cases, the flu can lead to death. In the United States, flu season occurs in the fall and winter and usually peaks in January or February.

Some flu related complications include pneumonia and dehydration. Certain groups are more likely to experience these complications including seniors, children and people with chronic health conditions. Therefore, it is important to take preventative measures to avoid the flu.

You can defeat the flu by getting vaccinated and washing your hands. It is important to stay home if you do become sick to help your body recover and to prevent infecting others.
