Influenza (flu) is an airborne viral respiratory condition characterized by symptoms of fever, cough, sore throat, and muscle pain. Illness can be mild to severe. Most experts believe that flu viruses spread mainly by tiny droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. The best way to prevent flu is by getting vaccinated each year.
