Kolkman, an antibody engineer at Janssen, the pharmaceutical company, and a co-author of the new study, published in the journal Science.

Now is the time to get a flu vaccine, which is considered preventive and in most cases is covered through employer-sponsored, individual, and Medicare and Medicaid health plans. Almost 400 people died in North Carolina during the last flu season.

"No, doc. When I was younger I would get it and always get sick, so now - at my age - I think I will pass on it this year and take my chances".

Despite the hope that this country may duplicate Australia's flu season, Murti said Canadians shouldn't assume there's no point in getting vaccinated.
