This Hotel Pays You to Get the Flu

This Hotel Pays You to Get the Flu
Ryan Boyd

St. Louis University’s Center for Vaccine Development has a deal for you: They’ll pay for your travel expenses up and your stay at its on-campus hotel, as well as pay you a little on the side — $3500 to be exact — in exchange for being exposed to influenza and being kept in quarantine at the hotel.

The Center for Vaccine Development hopes to be able to develop a universal vaccination able to cure various strains of the virus. There are only 24 reservations available for this program, so prospective guests/plague-bearers will want to jump on this as soon as possible.
