Hotel Influenza

How badly do you need a break from your regular life? How much do you need $3,500? If you answered VERY BADLY and VERY MUCH… then you may want to consider a stay at the Hotel Influenza!

Saint Louis University is using part of a former hotel to house volunteers to help with a study on the flu vaccine. Some of the participants will receive a flu shot and others will receive a placebo. Then, they will be exposed to the flu and quarantined for approximately ten days.

Participants in the study will stay in hotel-style rooms that include TV and internet. They are able to socialize in common areas (make new flu friends).
