Flu Season: Jurisdynamics Highlights Recent Developments

With flu season fast-approaching, several recent reports and studies have been released focusing on the potential threat of an influenza outbreak. The reports provide insight into health risks from seasonal flu and the continuing threat of an avian flu outbreak in humans. On Monday, October 23, the World Health Organization released a report concluding that global vaccine supplies are woefully inadequate. Just this morning, my local Kansas paper reports that flu shot clinics have been cancelled due to vaccine shortages. Results of a study on the safety and effectiveness of influenza vaccination in young children appears in yesterday's JAMA. The WHO report and a collection of several other recent pandemic flu reports appear at Jurisdynamics.
