Scientists may soon have a vaccine that will protect you from every form of the influenza virus.

Researchers in London may have just created a blueprint for a universal flu vaccine.

Investigators collected blood samples during the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic and found a way to possibly create a vaccine more effective at preventing the flu virus than conventional methods.

Within five years, scientists hope to design a vaccine that will stop you from getting flu symptoms and block people from even transferring the virus.
