    About flu

    Back to the top

    The flu (or influenza) is a viral infection of the respiratory system (namely your nose, throat, and lungs). Influenza is highly contagious and is commonly passed from person to person most frequently in the months between October and May. According to the CDC, the flu is primarily spread through tiny droplets that are produced when someone talks, sneezes, or coughs. Flu symptoms tend to come on suddenly and are usually more severe than those of a common cold. Common symptoms of the flu include:

    • Fever
    • Body aches
    • Cough
    • Sore throat
    • Chills or sweating
    • Runny or stuffy nose
    • Fatigue
    • Headache
    • Vomiting and diarrhea (more common in children than adults)

    According to the CDC, nearly 8% of the population will be infected by the influenza virus every year, with children and adults over the age of 65 getting sick from the virus most frequently.

    Most cases of the flu aren’t serious and will go away after a week or two with self-care treatment. Some people are more at risk for complications caused by the flu. For older adults, people with weakened immune systems, children, or people with underlying medical conditions the flu can cause serious complications such as pneumonia. To prevent the spread of the flu, and for more manageable symptoms, the CDC recommends receiving an annual flu vaccine. These vaccinations provide protection from several different types of the influenza virus.

    If you have questions about the seasonal flu vaccine or want to know how to receive the vaccine, talk to your doctor. If you are sick, stay home until symptoms have disappeared. Practice good hygiene and social distancing during peak flu season to prevent the virus from spreading.

    Treatment Options

    Most cases of the flu require bed rest and self-care as treatment. Because the flu is a viral infection, antibiotics will do nothing to speed up recovery. Below is a list of treatment options that can reduce the symptoms of the flu while you wait for the illness to pass. During your appointment, talk to your health care provider about what treatment plan is right for you.

    If you are sick, stay home and book a virtual visit with a doctor or health care provider. This will help prevent the virus from spreading.
