It’s too early to know how effective this year’s vaccine is. Early reports said it was only 10% effective but more recent reports are more promising.

In Pediatric News, an author (Kristina Bryant MD) published her friend’s Facebook summary of how she felt…
“Rough night. I’m seconds away from a meltdown. My body aches so bad that I can’t get comfortable on the couch or my bed. Can’t breath, and I cough until I vomit. My head is about to burst along with my ears. Just took a hot bath hoping that it would help. I don’t know what else to do. The flu really sucks.”
She summarized….even a 1 in 10 chance of preventing the flu is better than no chance at all!

It’s not too late to get the flu vaccine if you can find it.
Sorry — we don’t have any left!
