Q) How to Prevent Influenza?
 
A) If you are from the high risk group (Doctors, Nurses, Laboratory technicians, chronic heart or lung disease, sickle cell disease, immunocompromised) ask your doctor to vaccinate you against the flu. As the influenza virus changes frequently, you will need to get vaccinated every year to maintain your immunity. The flu is very easily spread through coughs and sneezes. Good healthy hygienic habits can greatly reduce the chance that you will pass the flu on to others. If you have the flu, you should avoid public places and close contact with others, especially children. If you have the flu, you should always cough and sneeze into a disposable tissue and wash your hands afterwards.
