Tackle the Flu Before It Tackles You Of course, the flu vaccine is the main fighter against the flu. However, there are many other steps one can take to help ward off the flu this year, such as: Wash your hands. As frequently as possible. Everything you come in contact with on a daily basis has the possibility of being home to a million flu germs. Therefore, every chance you get, wash your hands. If you aren’t around soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer until you can get to a sink. Avoid touching your face. Even when you wash your hands regularly, it’s best to keep your hands away from your face. Germs can enter the body through the eyes, mouth and nose. Disinfect everything. You’ll also want to disinfect all surfaces regularly, including door knobs, phones and even light switches. If hands touch it often, then it should be disinfected regularly to help prevent the spread of germs.
