Speakers discuss why the flu vaccine is more effective for some people, how someone’s health status may affect the body’s immune response, and recent efforts at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study these issues, with the goal of producing a universal flu vaccine that is effective against a broader range of flu strains....[more] [less]
