Influenza B

Influenza B viruses (IBVs) circulate annually along with influenza A (IAV) strains during seasonal epidemics. Influenza B viruses can dominate influenza seasons and cause severe disease, particularly in children and adolescents. Influenza B virus is only known to infect humans and seals with influenza.

Symptoms of Influenza B
• Fever, sometimes as high as 106 degrees F; children tend to experience higher fevers than adults
• Fatigue
• Body aches
• Respiratory ailments such as cough, runny nose, and sore throat; these become more pronounced as the fever subsides
• Stomach irritation, including loss of appetite, vomiting, and nausea.
