On flu vaccine, generations collide

About 1 in 3 adults do not plan to get a flu shot—and many underestimate the deadliness of the disease.

The war inside

Cold and flu viruses compete for precious resources in your respiratory tract, making it less likely you'll develop one if you have the other.

Flu is on the rise

Flu season is ramping up. Luckily there’s still time to get vaccinated. But do it soon.

With 80,000 flu deaths last season, experts urge vaccination

Prevention is key—public health officials urge Americans to get an annual flu shot, to protect both yourself and those around you.

Best flu defense? Annual shot, of course

While other precautions can improve your odds of a flu-free season, immunization remains the best defense.

Flu season hasn’t peaked yet

CDC says this year's vaccine is a good match for circulating strains.

Is it too late to get a flu shot?

Absolutely not. Influenza activity usually peaks in January or February.

Considering a flu shot? Just do it.

Now is the time to protect your family from this seasonal risk.
