Flu Vaccine 60 Percent Effective So Far, CDC Says

This year’s flu vaccine is one of the most effective in years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.

So far, people who got the vaccine were 59 percent less likely to get sick with influenza than people who didn’t, the CDC said.

CDC recommends that just about everyone get a flu shot every year but usually only about half of Americans do, NBC News reported.
