Every article, every doctor, and every expert will tell you to wash your hands. What they don’t tell you is when to wash them.

And most definitely after any contact with another person or a pet.

A flu shot is not designed to go after the little every day ones, they go after the deadly ones, the 3-5 strains that WILL kill you.
- 3)Wash your hands!
