RE: flu vaccine was effective in only 56 percent of people who got the shot

Had a cold late last week and felt pretty bad, but it seems not as bad now.

Best wishes,

This was unusually low, and was probably pulled down by a 27% average for those above 65.

In one strain, it was about 50% on the general population, but only 9% for the above 65 crowd.

Usually these are about 40% effective >65, and 60% in the general population.
