Mother Nature is at it again. For years we’ve been on high alert for bird flu (and lots of money has been spent researching ways to stop it), but now here comes a curve ball called swine flu.

We’ve already seen plenty of good resources online for finding information about this particular strain. (You might start with the CDC page on the topic.)

For our part, we’d like to point folks to a January 2008 story we did called "Universal Flu Vaccine." Ongoing research at the NIH offers the tantalizing prospect of one flu shot that lasts a lifetime. They say such a universal vaccine could even protect against strains of flu that haven’t happened yet.
