Influenza (the flu) is a serious illness which affects millions of Americans each year, of which about 250,000 are hospitalized. Of those, about 36,000 people, mostly over age 65, die each year from complications.
Common flu-like symptoms include:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 6 months and above get a flu shot. These vaccinations protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season.
