"Flu" is short for influenza, a contagious respiratory illness that infects the nose, throat, and lungs. It can make you feel awful. The best way to protect yourself from getting the flu? Get an annual flu shot. You can have the flu for 1 to 4 days before you start feeling sick. This means that you may be able to infect someone else before you even know you have the flu, not just while you are feeling symptoms. The CDC recommends a seasonal influenza vaccination every year for everyone age 6 months and older.
