Influenza, or more commonly known as "the flu", is a serious, acute respiratory illness that can lead to pneumonia. It is caused by a virus.

Immunization helps strengthen your body's natural immune response against the flu. The flu shot stimulates your immune system to build antibodies against the virus, making it stronger and ready to fight off the flu.
