Influenza is a serious contagious virus that may lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Influenza infection affects people differently. Even healthy people may become very sick from the flu virus and spread it to others.
Flu season can begin as early as October and last until May in the United States. The annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your chance of having the seasonal flu and decreases the chance that you will spread it to others. The more people that are vaccinated in the community, the less the flu can spread.
Travelers are at a particularly high risk for flu infection. The Northern Hemisphere has a seasonal flu virus usually between October until May. The Southern Hemisphere may begin in April and last through September. The tropical and subtropical areas may have infection with flu virus throughout the year. Travelers are at a higher risk for infection due to air travel and cruise ships which easily facilitate flu transmission.
Almost everyone should have a flu vaccine unless there is a medical reason for not having it. Groups in particular that should have the flu vaccine include:
