Impact of the Flu

Sick Boy with Stuffed Animal

The flu isn’t always thought of as a serious or life-threatening illness. Because of the dangers and complications influenza can have in older adults, children, and people with health problems, the perception of flu severity is changing.

Older adults, young children, and people with specific health conditions are at higher risk for serious flu complications.

Complications of the Flu

Each flu season, different flu viruses spread and affect people differently based on their body’s ability to fight infection.
