    Influenza A causes moderate to
    severe illness and affects all age groups.
    The virus infects humans and other animals.
    Wild birds keep influenza A active
    in nature.2


    Influenza B generally causes
    milder disease than influenza A and primarily
    affects children. Influenza B is more
    stable than influenza A and primarily
    infects humans.2

    Is the flu shot a live virus?

    Not all vaccines are made the same way. Flu shots are
    either made with

    contain no virus at all.
