On Sick, Two Sick, Three Sick, Flu Sick

Recently, the CDC announced that the strain of influenza virus chosen as the basis of this year’s vaccine does not match the common strains of flu virus now circulating.  In other words, the makers of the flu shot “guessed wrong” in their selection of the virus to base the shot on.   To poor salt on the wound, they are predicting this to be a really bad flu season. Okay, I am not a lab guy so I am not going to be critical of how they account for which strains to put in the vaccine.  And I guess some major mutation has occurred in the virus as well.  My issue is that the government is still pushing hard for people to get the flu shot.  Why? Do  they think some protection is better than none?  That makes all the sense of a mesh condom.
