Unless you suffer from a medical condition that specifically requires you to avoid going 
out in crowds, it’s likely that you are going to be at risk of contracting influenza from 
other people. If you want to reduce the risk of contracting it and reduce the risk of 
passing along to someone else if you have it, there are some simple steps you can take 
according to the CDC.

The easiest way to deal with the flu is to avoid getting it altogether. However, even if 
you do get a vaccination, there is a chance that you could become infected with the 
influenza virus. The way this happens is usually that either a virus that was not included 
in the vaccination manifests itself as part of the flu season or the virus drifts – meaning it 
changes a bit – over the course of the flu season, making an inoculation less effective.

Cedar Fever, Can You Prevent Or Lessen the Effect in Austin?

"Ceder Fever" is the nemesis of many people in the Austin and Round Rock areas yearly.  If you're one of the tens of thousands who suffer from it, you need no education on how much suffering it causes.  But can you prevent it, or is it unavoidable?  It's important to keep in mind that "Cedar Fever" is a direct result of two things: 1. your exposure to the voluminous amounts of pollen that Austin and Round Rock Cedar trees push out every winter, and 2. your body's individual histamine reaction to it.  That said, it's logical that the less you inhale the stuff, the less you'll suffer.  Let's look at some thoughts toward lessening your suffering.
