A compound in the frog’s mucus—long known to have germ-killing properties—can latch onto flu virus particles and cause them to burst apart, researchers report in Immunity. The peptide is a potent and precise killer, able to demolish a whole class of flu viruses while leaving other viruses and cells unharmed

Doesn't sound to me like it would actually replace flu shots, but be a new treatment.

I don't do flu shots anyway.
