Carter says another important part of not getting the flu is to  practice prevention.   Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently, keep you hands away from your face and cover coughs and sneezes. Once you use a tissue, throw it away, don’t put it in a purse or pocket. Also don’t share food or drinks, and when using hand sanitizer, rub it in until it is completely dry.
