Zika news

Zika virus spreads to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). People can also get Zika through sex with a man infected with Zika and it can be spread from a pregnant woman to her fetus. People can protect themselves from mosquito bites and getting Zika through sex. (CDC, 2016) 

The Zika:The Basics of the Virus and How To Protect Against It (PDF) fact sheet explains who’s most affected and why, symptoms and treatment, and how to protect against Zika.

For more information on the Zika virus, see the CDC's Zika Communication Toolkits and further information for healthcare providers.



Influenza news

Influenza is a contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus. The flu can cause mild to severe illness and 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 complications. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year (CDC, 2016).
