US : Newer flu vaccine as effective as traditional one

Via Reuters, excerpt :

" A flu vaccine made through a speedier production method appears to be as safe and effective as one produced in the traditional way, a study suggests. The conventional flu vaccine is produced using chicken eggs to grow the virus, a slow process that makes it hard to quickly boost production in response to a pandemic, such as the swine flu outbreak of 2009."
