It's worthwhile to run a scan at regular intervals.  While most would argue 
you aren't very likely to get a virus on a completely patched Fedora system, 
it still won't hurt anything.  Make sure you have the clamav-update package 
installed so you can run freshclam and update your virus definitions as 

chkrootkit is another good program that will check for rootkits, aide for 
intrusion detection, make sure selinux is enabled, if you don't like the 
default fedora firewall firestarter is in extras, but either way have a 
firewall, run yum often, and so on and so forth.
