Seasonal Influenza (Flu)

Influenza (or flu) is a seasonal respiratory (lung) infection that causes fever and a cough or sore throat. It is most common during the fall and winter months. In 2017, nearly 2,000 New Yorkers died of seasonal influenza and pneumonia, which can develop as a complication of flu. Vaccination is the best way to protect against the flu.
