Mmed & Surg Influenza Asiatic Flu Vaccine

Using a special machine to inoculate each egg with live virus of the new Asiatic flu strain, women laboratory workers at Eli Lilly and Company in Greenfield, Indiana on August 21, 1957, start the first step in producing vaccine. Because existing vaccines were ineffective against Asiatic flu, a new one had to be developed in the United States to combat the expected epidemic. (AP Photo)
