Influenza, commonly called the flu, is caused by the influenza virus, which infects the respiratory tract (nose, throat, lungs). Unlike many other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, the flu can cause a more severe illness and possibly life-threatening complications.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone ages 6 months and older get a flu shot each year. The flu season in Hawai‘i typically runs from October to April and peaks between December and March.
