LONDON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Scientists are moving closer to developing a universal flu vaccine.
Using data gathered during the 2009 pandemic, London researchers found people who didn't get very sick had more of a certain virus killing cell in their blood.
They are working to develop a drug that stimulates the body to produce those cells, which one day could be used as a universal flu vaccine.
