In a St. Joseph Health Scene Report, it may take just a half dose of the flu shot to get you through the season. A government study shows half-doses of the 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 during tough economic times.
