The current US recommendation is for a triple strength flu shot for seniors (65+). Something about lack of predictable response to the regular strength shot, possibly due to aging immune systems. I have found that almost no one is aware of that, and that all seniors are being given the regular strength shot. I was able to procure the stronger one, so it was available. This may explain the CDC's findings of only minimal efficacy.
