Immunization has saved more lives than any other public health intervention. Keep your family safe from vaccine-preventable diseases.
Influenza often happens in the winter and lasts from 2 to 7 days or longer. Influenza is usually most dangerous in very young children, the elderly, and those with chronic health conditions.
