Flu season begins October ending in March, with it peaking in February, though there are millions of cases per year, there are key actions to help prevent contacting the flu.

· Avoid those that have the flu, though classmates that sit next to you who are sick may pose an issue.

· Avoid touching the face as much as possible during the flu season.

· Similarly, wash your hands constantly after touching objects that others may have touched by others.

· Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or elbow when you sneeze or cough.

There are also flu vaccinations before or during flu season. You can visit a doctor’s office or even visit some stores that give flu shots to customers.

Of course, even without vaccines, all steps previously stated are good measures to prevent becoming sick. If all previous measures fail, then stay home, focus on recovering as quickly as possible and not infecting those around you.
