Flu, or influenza, is a serious disease that can be easily spread and lead to hospitalization and sometimes death, particularly in older adults. Flu season in the United States, when flu viruses are circulating at elevated levels, runs generally from early October through May. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances of infection, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
