As flu season rages across the United States, federal regulators say they have approved a new kind of vaccine for the virus.
The new product, Flublok, which is available in limited supplies for the current season, is different from other flu vaccines, because it isn't made using eggs or an influenza virus, the Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday.
