Influenza is an acute viral infection of the respiratory tract. It is an unpleasant illness for all people but in particular it can cause severe symptoms and even death in certain ‘at risk’ groups.
Annual influenza vaccination is therefore recommended to protect those most at risk if they develop the illness. NHS Choices outlines who should have a flu jab and Patient.co.uk explains side-effects that you may experience.
