H1N1 and other flus of that ilk such as H1N5 are typically spread by
Aerosol-like action and thus handwashing does LITTLE to help
prevent spread of infection since they're airborne rather than
spread by personal hand-to-hand contact.
Sneezing, coughing, and blowing one's nose will spread these flus
like wildfire and unless you have an N95 grade HEPA filter mask
that will prevent 95% of particulates of 0.3 microns in size or
larger, you're simply out of luck. The masks must also FIT properly
and MUST be regularly replaced in order to retain effectiveness
in prevention of aerosol spreading of disease.
I have a list of website to goto for more info
so I suggest you read these articles and guidelines
and of course keep a critical mind when choosing what's
best for YOU!

As an aside to my earlier comment about being FORCED
to take a vaccine, I believe that vaccination is a viable
method to PREVENT personal infection from H1N1 and other flus,
but it is STILL an AFFRONT to my personal liberty to be ORDERED
to ingest/take ANYTHING that I personally believe may be
an attack on my personal liberties as guaranteed by the
Constitution. And it is STILL my belief that the Government
AND my employer has ABSOLUTELY NO BUSINESS WHATSOEVER
in the affairs of MY OWN BODY. And ANY entity that professes
to know what's best for me needs a BIG LESSON in the Spirit
of 1776 when we decided to REMOVE THE TYRANNY of
the government of that day!
AND if they CONTINUE this ASSAULT on our personal liberties then
the government of TODAY needs to be TAUGHT that very same
lesson of 1776 --- It's WE THE PEOPLE who make the decisions
NOT YOU THE GOVERNMENT. If you CONTINUE, we will take matters
into our OWN HANDS and REMOVE YOU FROM YOUR OFFICE BY
DEMOCRATIC ELECTION....or in the most extreme and egregarious
cases of assault on WE THE PEOPLE ---- BY ARMED FORCE !!!!!!!.
When the WILL of the GOVERNED is made subservient to the will
of the elected, then the elected shall be REMOVED from OFFICE
and put in their place, with those who govern FROM the WILL
OF THE PEOPLE!!!
As the saying goes...It's MY BODY, AND MY LIFE
SO KEEP YOUR NOSE OUT OF IT'S BUSINESS !!!!!!!
So all you medical workers who disagree with the vaccine
STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS BY MASSIVELY PROTESTING FIRST
AND THEN ACTIVELY RESISTING IF THEY DON'T LISTEN !!!!
