You can't prevent it: Tips: sore throat – gargle with warm salt water (1/2 tsp salt in 8 oz of water). Get strep test/culture if very sore. Congestion – saline nose drops or netti pot. For anti-inflammatory effect & mobilizing mucus- homemade chicken noodle soup. Hydrate- lots of water/clear broth/ add honey & a small amt. Of lemon juice to chamomile tea.. Fever/ pain – Acetaminophen / nsaid’s rest!

May be there already: Being you're weak and achy, you may already be infected. See your doctor as some treatment may be in order.
