Tell a friend Avian Flu

Avian Flu virus

Every October, I find the closest flu shot clinic via Maxim Health Systems and schedule the 15-minute, $25 vaccine. This year, while waiting for the nurse to jab me (I don’t think I’ll ever stop hating needles), I asked her, rather naively, "Now, this won’t prevent avian flu, will it?"

"No," she said emphatically. "In fact, we currently have nothing for avian flu, which is why the threat is so devastating." I told her that I should probably know more, but I’ve been avoiding the news about it because it seems so hopeless.
