What is Influenza?

Seasonal influenza, or ‘the flu’ as it is commonly called, is a contagious disease caused by the A & B strains of the influenza virus. The flu is often classified as a respiratory disease, but may affect the whole body.

The infection: • begins suddenly • may keep you in bed for several days • may take up to 2 weeks to fully recover • can disrupt your work life or holiday plans • can result in serious complications in high risk individuals.

Who is at risk of catching the flu?

Anyone can catch the flu. Being fit and healthy does not stop you from getting it. You can also unknowingly infect others, as you may be contagious 1 day before and up to 5 days after symptoms to appear.

The flu is a highly contagious disease that spreads via: • sneezing • coughing • touching contaminated objects and transferring germs to the respiratory system
