CDC estimates flu epidemic to cost U.S. businesses over $10B, FT says

The flu epidemic spreading across the U.S., which may be the worst in the decade, will cost businesses about $10.4B this year, according to an estimate from the Centers for Disease Control, reported Financial Times. Reports of vaccine shortages have circulated, but vaccine manufacturers including MedImmune (AZN), Sanofi (SNY), Glaxosmithkline (GSK) and others say vaccine is available for those who want it, CNN reported last week.
