Influenza vaccine effectiveness was 75% against life-threatening influenza in children during the 2019 to 2020 season, when vaccine-mismatched viruses predominated.
During a season predominated by 2 vaccine-mismatched viruses, vaccination was estimated to reduce the risk of life-threatening influenza illness by 75%.
Close to 30% of reproductive-aged women hospitalized with influenza were pregnant during the 2010-2011 through 2018-2019 influenza seasons.
This season’s flu vaccine may do little to prevent infection with the main circulating virus strain because the strain has changed since the vaccine was developed.
