How Close Are We to a Universal Flu Vaccine?

The seasonal flu vaccine isn’t nearly as effective as it should be. And there’s no vaccine against new flu strains that can cause devastating pandemics. So there’s an urgent need for a “universal influenza vaccine”—a single shot that provides lifelong protection against all current and future flu viruses. In this video, Jennifer Abbasi from JAMA Medical News speaks with leading scientists about the latest advancements toward a universal flu vaccine: Bruce Gellin, MD, MPH, Sabin Vaccine Institute, Anthony S. Fauci, MD, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Martin Friede, PhD, World Health Organization, and Patrick C. Wilson, PhD, University of Chicago.
