Effective vaccines against the shifty influenza virus are hard to come by. Ian Haydon writes about a new anti-flu tactic.

Ian’s piece started in The Conversation and was picked up by Scientific American, Live Science, and the Daily Mail. More from Ian @ichaydon and ianhaydon.com image: Zeichner M. Eickmann
