Winter is here, which means so is flu season… But what actually is the flu and why does it hit strongest in colder months? The flu, also called influenza, is a contageous viral respiratory illness that can cause a variety of symptoms (cough, headaches, and more). Influenza is actually in circulation throughout the year, but hits strongest in the colder months because it thrives in dry, cold weather.
