    Just keep yourself protected indoors and avoid moving out or into places that are more susceptible to flu viruses. Also, you could wear a mask when you step out of home if you are oversensitive to catching viruses.

    It is advised to get your seasonal flu vaccine when flu season is at its peak. If you are not aware of any seasonal fever/flu cases reported, you can still get vaccinated to shield yourself. A flu vaccination becomes more important for people with weakened immune systems such as babies and elderly.

    The flu vaccinatpion protects against influenza strains during the entire flu season, providing support to your immune system. However, there is no benefit of receiving more than one dose of vaccine during a flu season.
