Flu shot did poor job against worst bug in seniors this year

Carlos Maisonet, 73, reacts as Dr. Eva Berrios-Colon gives him the flu vaccine during a visit to Brooklyn Hospital in New York. Health officials said Thursday that this season’s flu shot was only 9 percent effective in protecting seniors against the most common and dangerous flu bug.
According to a government study released Thursday, this season’s flu vaccine did almost no good at protecting people older than 65 from the worst and most dominant flu strain.
