Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.
The Kenosha County Division of Health offers influenza vaccine for people 6 months of age and older. Please contact our Nurse of the Day at 262-605-6775.
