In brief: Fever, cough, aches
Influenza is characterized by the rapid onset of a fevers around 102, a non-productive, severe cough and marked body aches.
Sometimes there can also be symptons of diarrhea with the recent h1n1, but less commonly with other influenza viruses. A flu shot is only 70% protective and immunity starts to decline 16 weeks after vaccination.
