Get paid to get the flu

The National Institutes of Health is hoping to find dozens of volunteers willing to be infected with the flu, for a price. 

Volunteers can earn up to $3,000 for their participation. 

It is part of a research study at the Montgomery County-based research hospital.

Researchers want to know if a certain type of antibody in the blood affects weather people get the flu. They are looking for volunteers between the ages of 18 and 50 years old.

You can find more details on the study through the website for the National Institutes of Health.
