Van Nuys, CA (Vocus) March 2, 2009

Influenza is a highly contagious virus known as influenza. It infects the respiratory tract and the virus can range from mild to very severe and in some cases can be fatal. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control reports that more than 30,000 people die each year due to influenza virus. The best way to prevent influenza is annual vaccination against influenza. The vaccine works against flu by inserting either dead or weakened versions of the influenza virus in the body, so they can create adequate immunity or antibodies to the virus. If re-exposure to the virus, the body will have appropriate measures in place to fight against this scourge.

In an effort to reduce the severity of flu symptoms, it is important to call the doctor when you start feeling these symptoms so that appropriate drugs can be prescribed.
general, influenza requires a visit to the doctor if you experience chest pain, shortness of breath, fever that lasts more than two days, vomiting or persistent cough or headache. These symptoms may be a sign that the body is not effective against influenza viruses. Following these tips will help you fight against the flu virus.
