Influenza, commonly known as the “flu”, is a potentially serious respiratory illness, caused by a virus, that can lead to pneumonia. Immunization helps strengthen your body’s natural immune response against the upper respiratory flu. The flu shot stimulates your immune system to build antibodies against the virus, making it stronger and ready to fight off the flu.
