Every single year a new version of the flu vaccine is created in order to try and reduce the effects of the flu. Unfortunately due to the ever evolving nature of the flu it is impossible for doctors and researchers to be completely accurate when creating the new vaccine and that is why many people still get the flu, fortunately now it looks like something better is on the horizon.
The newest flu vaccine in development this year is not like the vaccines from the past that only target a specific strand of the virus. The new flu vaccine was designed specifically to fight against a multitude of flu possibilities, the idea is that spreading the coverage will in fact make the vaccine more effective. So far researchers say they’re incredibly happy with the results and as such they’re beginning to put it into production for primary use this coming flu season. This has been attempted before but this time doctors say it is looking much more promising, this is absolutely good news for everyone given that thousands of people die of the flu ever year. Of course doctors are obviously recommending that everyone above the age of 6 months get vaccinated so make sure this fall you get a flu shot to stay protected.
