Understanding Influenza: Symptoms, Prevention, and Where to Find Vaccination Clinics

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. The flu can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to hospitalization or even death. While anyone can get the flu, young children, pregnant women, adults over 65, and people with certain medical conditions are at a higher risk for serious complications. Here’s what you need to know about influenza, its symptoms, prevention, and where to find vaccination clinics, including primary care doctors accepting new patients.

Influenza typically comes on suddenly and may include the following symptoms:

  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults


Influenza viruses are constantly changing, so getting a flu vaccine every year is important. The flu vaccine is the best way to prevent the flu and its potentially severe complications.

In addition to getting vaccinated, you can take everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of influenza

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
