It’s flu season!

In the United States, “flu season” is common during the fall and winter months. Influenza, commonly known as flu, is “a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.” To prevent the flu, it’s important to get a flu vaccine yearly.
