According to influenza research done by the US Center for Disease Control (US CDC), the flu vaccine is only 59% effective this year. The press release states that this is comparable to previous years vaccine effectiveness. With the seriousness of influenza from deaths to the economic impact from days off from work, vaccines along with other products that help alleviate the impact and symptoms of the flu are important.
