This season's flu shot did almost no good at protecting people over 65 from the worst and most dominant flu strain spreading around, according to a government study released Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013. Vaccinated people in that age group had only a 9 percent lower chance of going to the doctor with flu symptoms from the dominant virus than people who didn't get the shot. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke)
