How about a shot and a beer?

If you are leery of getting a flu shot, and you are otherwise in good health, the CDC has some suggestions on their FAQs page:

Are there other ways to prevent the spread of illness?

Take everyday actions to stay healthy.

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue inShot Glass the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.*
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
  • Stay home if you get sick. CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.

It is surprising how many people don’t do the most basic things (says the one who went to a work conference anyway, even though she was an sneezing, coughing, germ-laden sicko). Having said that, though, anyone with underlying health issues obviously needs to do more than just follow this list. (More than just using a Natty Boh – based hand rub, certainly ….)
