Researchers at the Scripps Institute in California infected llamas with multiple types of flu to provoke an immune response, the BBC reported. "We saw a coverage that has never been seen before".

Children four and younger, pregnant people and seniors are particularly at risk of serious complications due to the flu.

Ontario, which began rolling out its publicly funded flu immunization program October 22, is already receiving reports of influenza cases in some regions of the province and has recorded its first few outbreaks in long-term care facilities.
"The rapid onset of protection, along with the unprecedented cross-reactivity of MD3606 to strains of avian influenza, also offers the possibility of using this approach as a prophylactic", says the study.
And that means getting the flu shot, stressed Murti. "The vaccine is available across the province to protect you and your family".
