Influenza is commonly known as flu. Influenza is not the common cold. Unlike the common cold, influenza can result in severe complications of bronchitis, pneumonia, and otitis media in children. If you suffer from asthma, heart diseases and diabetes, an attack from influenza can make these conditions worse. If you are past sixty years of age, an attack from influenza should be taken very seriously as death is a real risk once you are past sixty years in age.
Prevention of influenza is by vaccination. It should be taken once every year or when you are about to travel to foreign lands. The influenza vaccination is adapted every year to account for the emergence of new strains of influenza and give best possible protection to people.
