“Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.” - James 5:14
Influenza is a respiratory illness from which most people recover without difficulty. For people in the highrisk categories, it can have severe complications and even death. A complication might be mild dehydration but if not treated, could escalate into a very serious concern. The flu can also cause bacterial pneumonia and worsen conditions like congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes. In the US an average of over 200,000 people are hospitalized each year because of complications. Flu is serious business so protect against it.
