Inventories of Flu Vaccines
The World Health Organization is planning ahead for this flu season, they are preparing for the worst. But with no known influenza virus vaccine, it is hard to tell when they will become available to the general public.
However, scientists have discovered that flu vaccines can be kept for up to two years after they are made. Which means there is nothing stopping scientists and pharmaceutical companies from creating an overabundance of vaccines this season. The more they make, the better off patients will be in the future.
As soon as a proven-to-work vaccine is found, scientists will be able to keep an adequate inventory of vaccines to distribute to the millions of people who are diagnosed with the flu each year.
