Slide Show: Don’t touch anything without gloves this holiday season — not even soap

This year, all Americans six months and older should get a flu vaccine shot and not, as they have done in previous years, get a nasal spray, according to an official health advisory released this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And while it’s best to get vaccinated before the end of October, getting vaccinated later is OK. “Vaccination should continue throughout the flu season, even in January or later,” the CDC says. “Some young children might need two doses of vaccine.”If that wasn’t bad enough, microbes that cause norovirus — which in turn leads to vomiting and diarrhea — as well as other infections lurk right under most people’s noses.
