Flu season typically runs from October through May. Viruses are spread mainly by coughing, sneezing and close contact. Symptoms include fever, chills, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, headache and runny nose.
While anyone can get the flu, it’s more dangerous for infants and young children, people age 65 and over, pregnant women and those with a weakened immune system.
