As the 2018-19 flu season approaches, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has started reminding the public to get flu shots. The study analyzed data from four flu seasons, from 2010 to 2014, and found that "flu vaccination reduced the risk of flu-associated death by half, or 51 percent, among children with underlying high-risk medical conditions and by almost two-thirds, 65 percent, among healthy children". But this isn't because the vaccinations don't work for most people.

That's not to mention the heavy toll of hospitalizations and deaths that occur mainly among people 65 and older. "It gives a better immune response". The quadrivalent vaccine contains antigens from four strains of influenza virus.
