Visialia Times-Delta

Americans seeking a flu vaccine this year will be able to choose from more than a dozen varieties, including some available for the first time.

There will be shots injected in the arm and vaccines sprayed into the nose; ones that protect against three strains of flu and others that protect against four.

There will even be 21st-century shots made in cell cultures, rather than eggs, a technology used since the 1950s.
