The FDA approves 2008-09 flu vaccine –
WASHINGTON, Aug. 5 (UPI) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the 2008-09 seasonal influenza vaccine that includes strains likely to cause flu in the United States.

The FDA changed all three strains for this year’s influenza vaccine — an unusual occurrence, as usually only one or two strains are updated from year to year.

They truly have a tough job: predict the future.  Get it right and nobody notices, get it wrong and there’s plent of fingers pointing at you.

Here’s hoping for an uneventful flu season.
