Flu Vaccine Makers Getting Ready for Next Year

Posted:

Vaccine makers are already planning a record supply of flu shots for next season. Five U.S. companies announced Monday that together they would produce 143-million doses next year, that's up 3-million from this year. 

They are all meeting with the CDC this week in Atlanta, not just to announce more vaccines for next year, but also to figure out how to fire Americans up to get those shots next time, since 44% were ineffective this year.
