Trump preparing executive order for flu vaccine  

The Trump administration is preparing an executive order to incentivize flu shot makers to use new development processes and encourage vaccination, Politico first reported. 

People "with knowledge of the plan" told Politico President Donald Trump is preparing the order, but budget officials and Congress still need to approve funding. Through the executive order, the Trump administration will direct HHS to develop a universal flu vaccine. The order is expected to establish a task force to identify ways to monitor this progress and to incentivize vaccine makers to use new  development processes that are faster than the traditional approach using hen's eggs, according to the report. 

Politico notes President Trump has made an about-face on vaccines, which he denounced as unsafe prior to his presidency.
