    Has anybody contracted the current stomach flu?

    It was announced by the CDC that we should really wash hands. Hand sanitizer has no effect on this flu. It can be passed from one person rather quickly to another person even when somebody is handling food. This may be important when dealing with side effects of cancer treatment.

      I haven't but the people around me are dropping like flies! I got my flu shot last November and I am somewhat cautious about not picking it up from other people but definitely not OCD about it.

      I've heard that the flu shot does not cover this one. Washing hands seems to be the best method so far.

      No, I have avoided that, but had the upper repository thing going around last month. I got my flu shot in September.
