      Achoo! Flu Shot Not Very Effective For Older Americans

      Seniors were one of the main groups urged to get a flu shot this season.

      But for many of them the vaccine didn't work.

      The CDC says the vaccine has helped just 9% of people of those who are 65 and older.

      For those under 65, the vaccine is about 56% effective.

      Researchers say they're not sure why this vaccine isn't as good this year.

      But, even with the disappointing numbers, the CDC says it's still worth it to get a flu shot.
