Remember that the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself from the flu. Handwashing is the best way to protect yourself from other infectious diseases. Also avoid touching your face as that is the main point of entry for most illnesses.
Also remember that you CANNOT get the flu from the flu shot. It is biologically impossible for that to happen! You MIGHT feel a little under the weather or even have a fever for a day or so, but it will NOT make you sick, so please do not let that concern prevent you from getting a vaccine. The vast majority of people have very little or no side effects from the vaccine.
