In brief: Yes

Antibiotics do not provide any protection , nor do they treat influenza.
If your family was vaccinated, they are less likely to catch your influenza, but the vaccine is not 100% effective. Good handwashing and decontamination of shared objects (doorknobs, refrigerator, faucets etc), cough and sneeze into your sleeve. Tamiflu (oseltamivir) is an antiviral that can be used to prevent flu when exposed.
