Colds and the Flu (cc)

Colds and the flu are very common, but not something to take too lightly. Back in 1918 a worldwide epidemic of the flu killed 21 million people.

Then we learn that, today, designated doctors, called sentinels, track viruses' movements and watch for any new strains of the flu. Information is gathered at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, allowing doctors to predict which virus to expect in a coming year; then labs develop vaccines to fight the flu and each year flu shots help save the lives of many. 04/10DE/CC Closed-Captioned SCA 30 min.
