Is AntiVirus needed for Android

I just got an HTC Evo and i was wondering if i needed to worry about virus'. Do i need to install antivirus software or is the phone protected right out of the box. This is my first Android phone and i want to make sure it is safe and secure. Anyone have any suggestions for antivirus software. I saw a few on the Android market but wasn't sure how legit they were.
