There is currently no safe vaccine to prevent 2019-nCoV infection aka Coronavirus. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus from other people. However, as a reminder, the CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Stay home when you are sick. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a face-mask.
CDC does not recommend that people who are well, to wear a face-mask to protect themselves from respiratory viruses, including 2019-nCoV because the facemask should be used by people who show symptoms of 2019 novel coronavirus, in order to protect others from the risk of getting infected. The use of face-masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
