Oh, it's going to cure the flu alright. That's not all it is going to cure. It is going to cure you of all your earthly concerns and worries. It is ingenious - it works by bringing the body to room temperature and keeping it there, for good. It's quite clever in that it solves all the problems of overpopulation, overcrowding and unemployment. It solves crime, teenage pregnancy and overdue library books. Forever. No saving throw.
IT's "THE CURE," John P. Holdren style.
You probably think that sane people are running the Western nations right now. That's a fatal error that is going to cost you your life if you get this vaccine when it is ready. They're going to make you an offer you can't refuse and you are finally going to have to make up your mind about who is telling you the truth and who is trying to kill you. If you take the easy way out, you'll hold still for the auto-injector and then smirk at all those nuts out there who question authority figures. It will be you who flatlines afterwards, not those "nuts."
Listen to George Carlin. He got it right.
