U.S. health officials have announced that two new flu vaccines that can protect against four flu strains will be introduced this year.  In addition, a new egg-free vaccine will be available for adults with allergies ages 18 through 49, the Orlando Sentinel reports.  There are other vaccine options for the elderly and needle-phobes.
