In the news this morning, the Centers for Disease Control announced yesterday that 26 states are experiencing a flu epidemic; 26 children have died from the virus.  They also disclosed that this season's flu vaccine is only 23% effective.  Over the years, effectiveness has ranged from 10 to 60% effective.  In spite of that, the CDC is encouraging everyone to get the vaccine, noting that 23% is better than nothing.
