Health Department Encourages Communities to Protect Themselves Against the Flu

It’s fall, and flu season is here again.  The flu is a respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs.  Flu can cause severe illness, hospitalization and death.  Anyone can get the flu, and serious problems can occur at any age.  However, some people are at higher risk for flu complications.  This includes people 65 years and older, people of any age with certain chronic conditions (diabetes, asthma or heart disease), pregnant women and young children.
