What is the flu?
The flu is caused by a virus that passes easily from one person to another. When sick with the flu, people often feel some (or even all) of these flu symptoms.
- Fever or feeling feverish/chills
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Muscle or body aches
- Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea (This is more common in children than adults.)
The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against flu is to get a flu shot every flu season.
Who should get a flu shot?
The CDC recommends a yearly flu shot for everyone 6 months and older, except in rare cases. The flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your chance of catching the flu and its possible serious effects.
