Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a highly contagious and serious viral infection of the respiratory tract. It affects all age groups, though kids tend to get it more often than adults. Symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, congestion, a runny nose, and, in some cases, extreme illness or death. The best way to protect yourself and your kids against the flu is to receive an annual influenza vaccination.
