19. hehe
Don't come into contact with any other humans, and you won't get any flu anyway. That's a lot easier to do where you live, did that not occur to your sister?? And no, there is no vaccine because they can't make it until there is actually a human transmittable strain. Just like with every other flu that started with birds because that's where ALL flu starts. If they tell people the truth about flu in general, then they'd know there's nothing to get hysterical about.
