What is the flu?

Influenza (the flu) is a respiratory infection caused by the Influenza A or B virus. Although seasonal influenza is a viral infection, complications such as pneumonia may occur in high-risk individuals.

What are common symptoms?

The flu is marked by the sudden onset of a headache, cough, fever, body aches, and weakness. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may also occur, especially in young children.

Does vaccination help?

Getting a flu shot helps prevent against developing influenza-related illness. You and any family members who are five years of age or older can get the annual influenza vaccine from your pharmacist. For children under the age of five, please speak to your family doctor about vaccination.

Are there needle-less options?

Yes, there's a nasal spray flu vaccine that is just as effective as the flushot. Just ask your local pharmacist.

For more information about the flu & flushots, please read the following literature:
