Flu and Medical Conditions

Most people who get the flu will have mild illness and will recover in less than two weeks.  Some people with certain medical conditions (like heart or lung disease) or certain age groups (including children younger than 5 years and adults 65 years and older) are at high risk for developing flu-related complications (like pneumonia).  Flu-related complications can be serious and lead to hospital stays or even death.
