It may take just half a dose of the flu shot to get you through the season.

That’s according to a government study.

It shows half-doses of flu vaccine are effective in adults, especially in women and those younger than 50.

The study also shows a half-dose comes in handy during vaccine shortages and offers a cheaper alternative.
