Flu is a contagious disease. It is caused by the influenza virus, which can be spread by coughing, sneezing, or nasal secretions.  People should get vaccinated as soon as vaccine is available.


Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccination. Vaccination is especially important for people at risk of severe influenza, including children under age 2, persons over 65 years, pregnant women and persons with chronic conditions.  Close contacts of children younger than 6 months should also be vaccinated, since younger infants cannot receive the vaccine.
