60秒科学：Ebola Efforts Helped By Flu Shots
60秒科学节目（SSS）是科学美国人网站的一套广播栏目，英文名称：Scientific American – 60 Second Science,节目内容以科学报道为主，节目仅一分钟的时间，主要对当今的科学技术新发展作以简明、通俗的介绍，对于科学的发展如何影响人们的生活环境、健康状况及科学技术，提供了大量简明易懂的阐释。
“There are only 101 reasons why something as simple as a flu shot makes all the sense in the world right now.” David Relman is a Stanford University infectious disease expert. Want to help fight Ebola? Get a flu shot.
“Come this winter, the last thing the public health system needs is a whole bunch—meaning hundreds of thousands—of people who have fever with an ill-defined and undifferentiated illness, who could have prevented those febrile illnesses by simply taking a flu shot. Because should Ebola show up more in this country, every emergency room and clinic is going have to be mindful of what does it mean to see someone with a fever and muscle aches and headache and even diarrhea. It would be a wonderful thing to be able to take influenza off the table and not have to worry about that in the midst of everything else.”
