Along with receiving the flu shot, Ott says it is important to: wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your nose, ears and mouth with unclean hands, cough into a tissue or your sleeve, keep frequently touched common surfaces clean, avoid hand shakes and try not to use other people's phones, computers or work tools.
