the vaccine. “Because the vaccine is weakened, the side effects should be minimized enough to give the vaccine to all individuals, even those whose immune systems are suppressed,” says Dr. Salata. “Our hope is that the new vaccine will be a safer...
Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients
