In the HIV space we're looking at interesting antibodies which can target highly glycan shielded regions of the virus. Producing enough protective flu antibodies to distribute to the same amount of people who get a flu vaccine is impossible though; so the approach would be a multivalent vaccine. However the problem isn't that we don't know where and what to target, it's mainly getting the human immune system to generate effective antibodies.
