Patients assessed and given influenza vaccination

  • Influenza, or the "flu," is a respiratory illness that is caused by flu viruses and easily spread from person to person.
  • There are over 200,000 hospitalizations from the flu on average every year. An average of 36,000 Americans die annually due to the flu and its complications.
  • The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot each year during the fall season. Because flu viruses change from year to year, it is important to get a flu shot each year.
