Flu Season Is Just Around The Corner
Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. During the fall and winter, any one of us could catch the flu from family members, friends, and co-workers. Coughing and sneezing from infected people can spread the flu virus. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.
Washing hands before eating or drinking, staying away from others who are sick and getting a seasonal flu shot are good ways to prevent or reduce flu symptoms. Each year in the United States on average, 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; on average, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications, and about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes.

The best way to keep from spreading the flu is to stay home if you are sick. Getting a flu shot will also help prevent spread of the flu.
