Dr. Ted Ross Presents to the Rotary Club of Vero Beach

With the flu season peaking earlier than normal this season and with the return of the H1N1 Swine Flu, which poses a serious danger to even young, healthy adults, health-care workers are now urging everyone to get a flu shot. But what if a single flu shot of a more "universal flu vaccine" could effectively protect us all against flu regardless of season-to-season variation? This broad protection could decrease the need for most to get a flu shot each year. This is the approach that is soon to reach human clinical trials according to Dr. Ted Ross, Program Director of Vaccines and Viral Immunity at VGTI Florida®.
