“As the U.S. flu season soars, the CDC says this year’s flu vaccine doesn’t match two of the three main types of flu bugs now in circulation.

That doesn’t mean the vaccine won’t work. Vaccinated people who catch the flu get a much milder disease. This can make a life-or-death difference to people who are at high risk of flu complications, such as the elderly.” (WebMD)
