Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Serious outcomes of flu infection can result in hospitalization or death. Young children are at high risk for serious flu complications. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.
