My kids still don't start for 3 wks :P

When they do go back, we'll be doing A LOT of hand washing! Trying to teach them to keep their hands out of their mouths during the day .... they are only 3 and 4 yrs old!! We don't do flu vaccines, but they all had the H1N1 last yr, so im not to worried about that.

 We don't get the flu shot, mainly because half os us have wound up in the hospital after having it.. more than once.

We wash more often, clean the house with more bleach/antiseptic than usual.  Teach good sneezing/coughing habits (to avoid sharing) and we uptake the vitamins... rather than the usual daily, we use the airborne booster for travel.

It never fails that we get the sniffles, but since the last time we had the flu shot (3yrs ago), we haven't had it progess further.

We fight it mostly through sleep and what we are eating.
