Influenza A “The Flu”
The flu is a highly contagious and common illness that is caused by the influenza virus. There are three different types of flu viruses: influenza A, B, and C, all of which cause illness in humans.
People can get the flu any time of year, but in the United States and most of the Northern Hemisphere, flu season spans late fall to early spring. Flu activity typically peaks between December and March.
People of all ages can get the flu. However, children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are most susceptible and more likely to develop serious complications.
