While most people who get influenza (flu) have mild symptoms, some people – like older adults, young children, pregnant women, and people with certain chronic medical conditions – are more likely to develop serious flu complications that can result in hospitalization and sometimes even death. Tens of thousands of people died from flu-related problems during the last flu season alone, but there is a vaccine that can help.
In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are pleased to share new video education about influenza (flu) and flu vaccine.
- Understand who is most at-risk of serious complications
- Learn what chronic conditions can be exacerbated by flu
- Get an update about this year’s flu season right from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, GA.
