Which is more likely to get the flu: a new vaccine or a brand new one?
The brand-new flu vaccine is less likely to be effective than the one that already is in use, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In fact, it’s likely to have fewer side effects than a brand-name flu vaccine, according the CDC.
That’s good news for vaccine makers, who will now have to decide whether to continue the development of a brand that will be more effective.
The CDC report, which was released Wednesday, found that a new flu vaccine would have a 25 percent chance of being effective over the next year, compared to the current one.
A brand-title vaccine would be 40 percent effective, compared with 35 percent for the current flu vaccine.
The new flu shot will not be able to protect against all flu strains, the report found, but it will be effective against at least three strains that have already been identified and are known to cause significant health problems.
The study found that if a vaccine is developed to protect people from the strains that are now being identified, it should be safe and effective.
It is unlikely that the flu vaccine will be a success, however.
The report found that the risk of flu-related deaths and hospitalizations would likely increase with a vaccine that was developed to prevent the flu.
The FDA also is studying whether it should phase out the use of the brand-number vaccine by the time it is ready.
“I don’t think we’re going to see a final decision in the next few weeks, but I don’t see that happening in the near future,” said Andrew Wakefield, the man who first linked the new influenza vaccine to autism.
Wakefield was found dead in his home in 2014.
He was a longtime associate of Andrew Wakelitz, who helped design the vaccine.
Wakeliz died of complications related to the flu on Nov. 28, 2016.
The company behind the vaccine, Sanofi Pasteur, has said it is working on ways to stop the virus from spreading.
The U.S. is currently vaccinating people who live in close proximity to where the virus is present, or in locations where there have been outbreaks of the flu, as well as those in communities where people are vaccinated but have not been in contact with others who have had flu.
