How are you protecting yourself and your family from getting sick?

MOS-ShelbyDenhof2

“My family plans to get the flu shot and we’re more conscious about washing our hands. It’s terrifying in school. I imagine every high school student is going to get sick this season. It seems inevitable; we touch the same things.”

—Shelby Denhof, Rockford

“I’m washing my hands, not shaking hands as often, staying out of crowds, and wiping shopping carts down. I use hand wipes whenever they’re provided, like at Meijer. I’m also planning on getting the H1N1 vaccine.”

—Kendra Davis, Livonia

“I’m taking vitamins, doing lots of hand-washing, and praying. I’ve always been conscious about shopping carts. I carry a spray bottle of sanitizer… I’m not getting the H1N1 vaccine. I don’t want to put any chemicals in my body.”

—Kelly Roesner and son Kenny, 10, Rockford

“My wife washes her hands all the time and I’m keeping a close watch on my son. The H1N1 flu is being over-hyped. With my wife being a doctor, I have a different perspective. I’m less likely to freak out. I’m not getting the vaccine, but my wife had to.”

—Eric Lofgren and

son Clifford, 1, Rockford

“I’m doing lots of handwashing, getting fresh air, and using hand sanitizer. I always wipe shopping carts down. I’m not getting the H1N1 vaccine. It’ll pass. It’s being hyped by the media. They’re trying to make everyone aware, but it’s going overboard. I’d rather have those who are unhealthy and children get the vaccine. I’m healthy.”

—Jennifer Meachum, Grand Rapids
