Flu is short for influenza (in-floo-EN-za). The flu is a virus (VY-rus), a tiny form of living matter that grows in living tissue. Viruses cause sickness in people, animals and plants. The flu virus causes fever, chills, body aches, headaches, coughing and sneezing, and can make you very tired. Having the flu means staying home in bed — missing school, your friends, and the activities you enjoy. Some people with the flu get so sick they have to go to the hospital. A flu shot can help keep you — and the people around you — from catching this nasty bug.
