Influenza - (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The safest, most effective way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated. The Centers for Disease control recommends that everyone 6 months and older get their yearly flu vaccine.
In addition to the vaccine, you can prevent flu and other illness by:
Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then discarding the tissue promptly
Washing hands frequently with soap and water. If they are not available, use an approved hand sanitizer.
Staying home when you are sick.
