I don't understand. They are telling us that this year the vaccine targets the right virus.

I thought that this statement was correct initially (else, you know I would've felt an obligation to correct it!) but I fancy that the flu vaccine isn't any more effective acroos the board than in previous years.......maybe about 70%

We have something of an emergency situation up here in the Boston area. Pretty much all emergency beds are filled in the the Longwood hospitals (those are the Harvard centers of excellence) and, owing to low herd immunity, medical personnel are falling prey also.

Hope everyone reading this thread is making the appropriate contribution to public health
