B3594: Why do you need to get a flu shot every year? in Splash! Spring 2014 (Apr. 12 - 13, 2014)
Why is it that most of your vaccinations are over with just a few doses which may be spaced out over years, while you must endure the long lineups and unpleasant jab in the arm for your flu vaccination once a year for a lifetime? Learn about the molecular mechanisms driving change in the influenza virus, resulting in the annual arms race of flu monitoring and vaccine generation. The ability of influenza to undergo rapid gene mutation and genetic reassortment, leading to changes in the structure of key proteins that allow the virus to evade the body’s defenses, will be covered.
