How effective are flu photos?
Effectiveness varies annually. Because it takes at least six months to make and distribute the pictures that come available in September, scientists need to do their best in terms of what types will be circulating, and so what to include in a vaccine, well in advance. During that time – and even while vaccines are produced – the viruses that cycle can reduce the effectiveness of the vaccine chosen. There is imperfect science.
"We're doing the best we can," said Dr Offit, who also sits on the Food and Drug Administration advisory committee that recommends what types to be included. "But you're trying to predict what will happen to happen six months now."
Sometimes he said, the experts guessed inaccurate. In the 2014-15 During the term, the vaccine was only 19 per cent effective. Last flu season, the general effectiveness of the vaccine against flu virus A and B is estimated to be 40 per cent. In other words, it reduced your risk of having to seek medical care for the flu by 40 per cent, according to the C.D.C.
Will I have to pay for my vaccine?
