Health officials recommend the flu vaccine as the most effective way to prevent influenza, which is widespread across the continental United States this week, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To help prevent spread of the flu, health officials also recommend that sick people stay home until they are fever free (without medication) for at least 24 hours, covering your mouth when you cough and washing your hands often.
