How many eggs are used each year to produce vaccines?

Since the 1930s eggs have been the primary vehicle to produce vaccines – Viruses are injected into a fertile eggs and allowed to turn that incredible edible ovam into a swinging orgy of pure evil for 3 days. Viruses don’t actually have sex in the traditional sense, opting instead to inject their DNA into a host cell which, come to think of it, sounds a lot like sex. After viruses definitely have sex, they they are extracted, ¬†killed, and eaten with toast points.

While the number varies based on demand, around 600 million eggs are used each year in vaccine production. It takes one to two eggs to produce a single dose of  flu vaccine.
