Influenza --“the flu”-- is a highly contagious virus that spreads easily between people.
The flu is most dangerous for:

Those with chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma, or a weakened immune system.
A flu shot is the best way to protect yourself, your community, and your loved ones. Everyone aged 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine every year.
