Title: Influenza and its prevention
Authors: Centre for Disease Control

Abstract: Influenza (often called flu) is a respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus of which there are 3 types; A, B and C, each with many subtypes or strains. Types A and B cause most of the disease in humans. Influenza viruses are characterised by the way they mutate overtime thereby forming new strains and evading the immune system. Because of this, vaccine is formulated annually to best match the strains predicted for the coming influenza season.
