The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year. Those at high risk for influenza are children younger than age five, especially those under the age of two; adults over 65; pregnant women; and people with chronic medical conditions.
