    Flu Pandemics in the Bay State: A 30-Minute History

    The deadly flu pandemic of 1918 killed over 600,000 people in the United States, 45,000 in Massachusetts alone. The pandemic first appeared in soldiers in the port city of Boston in the last months of WWI, and many believed the flu was spread via a German ship or a new German drug called Bayer Aspirin. Michael McGuill, DVM, MPH, looks back at the success and failure of measures to contain this and other historic flu pandemics in Massachusetts.
