Influenza is a serious disease, and people of any age can get it. In an average year, the flu causes 36,000 deaths and more than 200,000 hospitalizations in the United States. The "flu season" in the United States is usually from November through April each year. During this time, flu viruses are circulating in the population. An annual flu vaccine (either the flu shot or the nasal spray) is the best way to reduce your risk of getting the flu.
