Flu

About flu

The winter months present plenty of opportunities for viruses to spread. Chilly weather keeps more of us indoors at the same time, and the holiday season brings together family members of all ages. Colds and flu (influenza) can occur anytime, but appear mostly in the fall and winter.

For most people, viral respiratory illnesses are usually self-limited and last only a few days. But along with making millions of us feel lousy every year, colds and flu can cause serious problems and can even be deadly. Each year flu complications cause an average of 114,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Death rates are highest for people ages 65 and up and for those with medical conditions that put them at increased risk for flu complications
