The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs.  The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.  The Center for Disease Control states that it is important to get a flu vaccination each year.  The CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions (like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent handwashing) to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu.  Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.
