What is the flu?

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. Influenza virus can cause mild to severe illness. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to learn about the flu.

When should I get a flu shot?

It takes about two weeks after the vaccination for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends getting a flu shot before the end of October, prior to the start of flu season.
