The Continuing Crisis

When this current flu crisis in East Tennessee is eventually over, I would really like to see some reliable statistics on how many people who got flu shots eventually came down with the flu, and how severe it was.

Each year I hear anecdotal evidence that the shots didn't do much to protect people, usually because the wrong strain was antipated. But I think it would be important to know this so we can determine how useful flu shots actually are.
