Flu Season 2020 – 2021
Influenza (flu) is an easily spread respiratory tract infection caused by a virus. About 5% to 20% of people in the U.S. get the flu each year, with more than 410,000 hospitalized with the illness last year.
Here are some useful resources for this year's flu season, typically October through March. Learn about flu essentials and tips to help keep you, your family and our community healthy.
Help us keep everyone safe this flu season by getting vaccinated. Even if you can fight off infection, you may still spread it to those who can't. This puts anyone you interact with at risk, including these groups at higher risk of serious illness and death from flu complications:
- Older adults
- Young children
- Pregnant women
- People with weakened immune systems and other chronic medical conditions
