New egg-free flu vaccine to be released soon

There will soon be a new vaccine out there to help prevent seasonal flu.

The FDA says it's approved vaccine that's made without eggs or the influenza virus.       

It's called "flublok" and is permitted for use in people 18 to 49 years old.

Health officials say in the event of a pandemic, this new technology could speed up the vaccine manufacturing process.
