Bird Flu Vaccine

Have you forgotten about the Bird Flu? The government hasn't.

Wednesday, the FDA approved the first bird flu vaccine made for humans. There have been about 300 cases worldwide and even though there have not been any cases in the US, the government is prepared to stockpile this bird flu vaccine just in case it gets scary again.

But all this doesn't mean the bird flu gurus can take a break now since this new vaccine only works about half the time. The National Institutes of Health continues its mission to stockpile a lot of what we have now but continue the search for something better.
