Results for - Getting the Flu Shot!

3,077 voters participated in this survey

Most of the flu vaccines on the market today are made using chicken eggs, just like the ones you eat for breakfast. Scientists pick what flu strains they think will attack during the upcoming flu season, put those viruses in the egg where they multiply, and then once they've grown, use those viruses to make the vaccine. But sometimes the viruses mutate inside the eggs, meaning that when they are put inside the vaccine, they don't match what's out there making people sick.
