Bird Flu Vaccine

This may be more hype, than anything new, but it would seem that anything to decrease the time to producing an avian flu vaccine would be good
U.S. health officials have said it would take months to manufacture a vaccine against the H5N1 avian flu strain should it cause a human epidemic.
It would even seem to me we should be gearing up production now, after all isn't the idea to avoid an epidemic, rather than to react to one
