    I like the idea of a super flu shot. The current vaccines are a cocktail of the flu strains that public health experts predict (six months in advance) will circulate through the country in the fall and winter. This year’s vaccine will be identical to last year’s vaccine. However, since that is usually not the case I doubt if any of the excess vials from last year are even still around.
