David Vaught | Sep 20, 2020 | Cancer Updates, Research

The flu affects, on average, between 9 and 45 million adults each year. And this year, we’re juggling the flu and COVID-19 pandemic.

David Vaught, a research grants manager at Susan G. Komen, tells us about the importance of getting a flu vaccine, if you can, and updates us on progress made toward an eventual COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccines aren’t only important for protecting us from viruses, but could, one day, be used to fight breast cancer. Hear about the work of Komen Scholar Dr. Keith Knutson on a breast cancer vaccine, in this week’s In Case You Missed It.
