Seasonal Flu Shots Could Be Replaced By A Universal Vaccine

You just need to be hit once with a bad case of the flu to know why you should get a flu shot every fall. But with so many strains of influenza out there, some say the science behind the yearly vaccine is a guessing game that may or may not keep you or the people around you from catching the bug.
