About The Flu

Influenza (commonly known as the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses.

It can cause mild to severe illnesses, and in some cases can lead to death. Between 10-20% of Ontarians get the flu each year.

The flu typically comes on suddenly, with some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Fever (or feeling feverish/chills)
  • Achy muscles
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea

Other Ways To Avoid the Flu

While the flu vaccine is your best defence against catching the flu, you should also take the following steps to protect yourself and your community:

  • Wash your hands often with hot water and soap
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Stay home from work or school if you feel sick
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough
  • Disinfect common surfaces frequently
  • Avoid touching your face
