Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Serious outcomes of flu infection can result in hospitalization or death. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications. Vaccination against the flu is the best way to protect yourself, your family, and your friends.

September 1, 2018: The Monterey County Health Officer has issued an order for all health care workers in licensed health care facilities to receive an influenza vaccine this season or wear a mask while in patient areas.  Please click here or "For Health Care Providers" below for more details.
