Scientists Project a Bad Flu Season

Scientists are now saying this flu season may be especially bad over the next few months.

According to scientists examining this year’s vaccine and its ability to stop 2021’s dominant flu strains, the team finds the shot is unable to beat a mutation in the flu.

Scientists say, this will likely be the primary reason why more people will be getting infected this winter.

People getting the annual flu shot still have the chance of getting sick because the vaccine antibodies don’t line up with virus strains circulating.

These findings are being shared in a pre-print study and are still awaiting being reviewed.
