I'm usually against going to get my flu shot every year. My mother will beg and plead for me to just go in, especially when our particular health care providers are loaded to the gills with it, in spite of the shortages country-wide.

But THIS I would go get.

"British scientists are on the verge of producing a revolutionary flu vaccine that works against all major types of the disease.

Described as the 'holy grail' of flu vaccines, it would protect against all strains of influenza A - the virus behind both bird flu and the nastiest outbreaks of winter flu.

Just a couple of injections could give long-lasting immunity - unlike the current vaccine which has to be given every year"

Story here

I hope they do it.
