    This Flu Season, Get A Flu Vaccine
    Flu season usually starts in October and continues through the winter months with peak activity in January and February. Influenza, commonly called "the flu," is caused by the influenza virus, which infects the respiratory tract (nose, throat, lungs). Unlike many other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, the flu can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications in many people.
