What is the Flu?

The flu is a respiratory virus spread through coughing, sneezing or any discharge or exchange of fluid from the eyes, nose or mouth. The flu could lead to pneumonia as well as other illnesses, though it is not very likely for those under the age of 65. Even though the typical flu season starts in November and December, the best thing one can do in preparation is to get a flu shot early.
