Experts announced that countries may soon face the dreaded "flu pandemic." Tagged as the big one, health care professionals announced that the major pandemic can potentially impact humanity on a large scale.

Researchers recently announced that a flu pandemic might hit every human being alive today in the near future. According to CNN, the pandemic flu can potentially circulate the entire globe within just a couple of minutes, which can have a huge impact on humans.

Experts also mentioned that the flu can easily affect young children and old people. Individuals with a weak immune system can also be hit easily, and it can even cause death to some extent. They stressed that babies are more vulnerable compared to older people as they're immune system has not yet fully developed.

Even though the precautions in regards to the pandemic flu were already rolled out, it was explained that the body needs an extra boost in terms of protections. Health professionals announced that one of the most effective solutions to fight the flu are vaccinations.

Flu and viruses easily developed in the 21st century, thus coming up with the cure can sometimes be a little too late. Richard Hatchett, CEO of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations told CNN that health care providers can potentially distribute high amounts of vaccines in a lesser time period with the medical advancement that's been going on. However, one of their struggles that could potentially delay the vaccine rollout process are the testing and approval.

Influenza is a serious disease, as per the U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Though some of the neglect it, there are those that would spend weeks in the hospital, as some even resulted in death.

Flu vaccines are often advised as it boosts the development of the person's antibodies. The antibodies are from small virus strains injected to the body as a form of the vaccine.
