Influenza (flu) is a respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses and can cause mild to severe illness. At times can lead to death. The best way to prevent flu is to get a flu shot each season. Occasionally people who get the flu shot do contract influenza, but research shows that the illness is often less severe and of shorter duration in those who are vaccinated.
