We received a shot but don't know if it was the experimental vaccine or the standard flu shot. We'll get tested for antibodies in a couple of months to find out if the vaccine was effective and which one we received. Symptoms were mild tenderness for a couple of days, same as any other flu shot.

It's also being used to create a new flu vaccine. Hubby and I are phase 3 test participants. The mRNA technology can produce more vaccine material faster than previous technologies, allowing the most current flu strains to be targeted. Exciting stuff.
