Even though how well the vaccine works does vary from year to year, the flu vaccine remains the single best tool we have in preventing flu infections, flu-related hospitalizations, and flu-related deaths. Following other basic healthy habits like cleaning your hands often with warm soapy water or an alcohol-based sanitizer, not touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands, and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze can also help prevent the spread of flu.
