Happy birthday, no flu. Happy birthday, no flu. The two things you need to do this flu season to keep yourself protected are: get a flu shot and wash your hands.


Most people don't wash their hands long enough. Singing the Happy Birthday song twice while vigorously washing your hands with soap and water will help prevent the spread of germs.

Many other people don't get the flu shot.
