For People with Chronic IllnessPeople with chronic illnesses are more susceptible to the flu. People with compromised immune systems are more likely to contract the virus, and their symptoms can be more severe than in the general population. If you have a chronic medical condition, you should consult your doctor about getting vaccinated and other ways to protect yourself against the flu.  If you do experience flu-like symptoms, you should contact your doctor to see if you need treatment or further evaluation.
