and older.

The flu can worsen underlying medical conditions such as heart disease, as well as lead to co-infections with other viruses and bacteria. The flu can exacerbate heart disease conditions and can lead to conditions like viral or bacterial pneumonia that cause complications of heart disease. Recent studies have found that the flu may trigger up to 92,000 cardiac deaths per year nationwide.

According to the CDC, getting vaccinated is the best way to protect against the flu. Groups who are at risk for serious complications include the very young, people 50 years of age or older, the chronically ill, and women who will be pregnant during flu season. Additionally, people who live with or care for persons at high-risk of complications (including all healthcare workers) should get vaccinated to help them stay healthy and avoid infecting others.

The beginning, severity and length of the flu season can vary widely from year to year. While October or November is the best time to get vaccinated, getting the flu vaccine later can still be beneficial in most years because influenza activity usually peaks between December and March.
