Also called the Seasonal Flu, the 'flu' is short for influenza. It is a viral infection which attacks the respiratory system. Some of its symptoms are coughing, sneezing, headache and fever. It is spread through contact with the virus particles directly from someone else, from contaminated surfaces and objects and from breathing in respiratory droplets in the air that contain virus particles just after someone infected coughs or sneezes. Avoid touching your nose, eyes or mouth after touching a person with the flu or surfaces they have recently touched so you don't introduce the virus to your tissues.

If you actively have the flu, then the flu shot will not cure it. The flu shot is a preventative measure. There are many strains of flu. Once you have a strain of flu, you are immune to it in the future. The flu shot changes year to year in anticipation of what strains will be prevalent. Once you have gotten the flu shot, there is no need to get the same flu shot that year.
