Default Was the 2016/17 flu shot a good match?

Just wondering. Saw a new article just now that
flu is at epidemic levels in my state.

I hope it's a good match, because I got the jab.

So far in Canada - pretty good matches but our season is just winding up & the last report still showed pretty low numbers & percentages of consults for illness.

If anecdotal evidence is anything to go by, the next report, (Friday), will see at least local numbers ratchet up significantly.

I heard Washington state is getting hit very hard right now. Not sure if this is a miss or it is just the peak of a regular flu season.
