Influenza (or “the flu”) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus that affects the nose, throat, and lungs. Influenza spreads mainly from person to person by droplets from the nose or throat that are released when an infected person coughs or sneezes. There are many things that people can do to prevent themselves or their loved ones from getting or spreading the flu. CDC and VDH recommend that everyone 6 months of age or older receive a flu vaccination each year, especially those who are at high risk of serious complications from the flu.
