For as long as we can remember our family tables, local diners, and national chain restaurants have offered a traditional American breakfast consisting of bacon or sausage, hash browns, toast, and in some form or another, an egg.

While this dining experience goes back generations, more recently that same hen’s egg has taken on a new role in the lives of not only Americans, but individuals all around the world.

Eggs are now being used to protect humans from several ever-evolving, deadly, contagious, and diligent viruses including the influenza virus.

Using the environment inside the egg’s thin Calcium Carbonate shell, scientists around the world are working diligently to manufacture and replicate vaccines for global viruses in an effort to keep the world’s population safe from viruses.

Please visit the other pages on this site to learn more about how the everyday egg has been utilized in the world of vaccinations.
