Seasonal Flu


 

Flu is an infection of the respiratory tract caused by a virus. The virus spreads through coughing and sneezing, and can settle on doorknobs, furniture and other objects.

Seasonal Flu

  • Flu season begins in July-August and November-December. 
  • The virus spreads through coughing and sneezing, and can settle on doorknobs, furniture and other objects.
  • Touching these infected objects, and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes can easily pass on the infection to you. 
  • The infection lasts for a few days and affects young children, the elderly and people with a weak immune system. 

How can you prevent the flu?

  • A flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu. 
  • Young children and the elderly, and people with diabetes, asthma, kidney problems, cardiovascular ailments and smokers have weak immunity and must take the vaccine. 
  • One dose of the vaccine can protect you for an entire year.
