Influenza Virus

Influenza is a viral infection that attacks your respiratory system - your nose, throat and lungs. The flu is commonly known as the flu, but it's not the same as the "flu" stomach viruses that cause diarrhea and vomiting. For most people, the flu goes away on its own. But sometimes the flu and its complications can be deadly. People at higher risk of developing complications from the flu include: young children under 5 years of age, especially those under 12 months of age.Adults over 65 Residents of nursing   homes and other long-term care facilities. Pregnant women and women up to two weeks after delivery.People with weakened immune systems.People with chronic conditions such as asthma, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease and diabetes.Persons very obese, with a body mass index (BMI)) of 40 or more. Although the annual flu shot is not 100% effective, it remains your best defense against the flu.
