Influenza (flu) is a respiratory disease caused by influenza virus infection. The types or strains of influenza virus change from year to year, and even within the same year. The flu can affect anyone, any age, anywhere. Those affected by the flu may have fever, chills, headaches, dry cough, runny or stuffy nose, and muscle aches. Most people recover completely. However, for some people, the flu may be especially severe, and pneumonia or other complications including death, may develop.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), it is estimated that over 40 million Americans develop the flu and 100,000 are hospitalized. In the U.S., influenza and its complications have caused 20,000 deaths.

Flu shots are your best protection against influenza.

For the schedule of dates and locations of the flu vaccination clinics, please visit the Stater Bros. Market website at , pull down "Company," and click on "Press Releases."
