No research but I was told (so obviously it's true) that it may have only been 20 percent effective this year. They missed the mark with the strand or something like that. I don't know, just heard it's quite a bit less effective this year.
Plus I've heard there are lots of different varieties of the flu this year or more than usual.
My 2 and a half year old son was diagnosed with the flu, strep and an ear infection. And other than being fussy when he had a fever (quickly knocked out with Motrin) he was totally fine. Of course he could just be a badass, though.
