In brief: No
Being vegetarian does not have a bearing on getting flu.
You should take precautions, e.G, gown, glove and mask while handling birds or material that has been in contact with birds.

In brief: Probably not
If you worked on a poultry farm or something similar you could be at increased risk, but in general veterinary practice your risk is very low.
