The work done by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine faculty members (and even some students) is regularly highlighted in newspapers, online media outlets and more. Below you’ll find links to articles and videos of Feinberg in the news.
Dr. Michael Ison, an expert in infectious disease at Northwestern, says it’s
not too late to get the vaccine.
“According to the CDC, the strains that are in circulation currently are very
well matched to the vaccine so it should provide excellent efficacy,” said
Dr Ison. “The other thing you have to recognize is that once you get the flu
vaccine is only protecting you against flu and it takes a couple of weeks
for that protection to develop so if you get exposed the day after you get
the vaccine or you get exposed to another virus that isn’t influenza you
still may get sick.”
