  1. An influenza year begins in September and ends in August the following year. “M” means the vaccine was well matched to circulating strains (VE = 70%) [16]. “U” means vaccine was poorly matched to circulating strains (VE = 42%) [16]. Blank cells indicate no detectable peak in influenza activity. *There were no SH VE estimates available at the time, and we used VE values for the NH vaccine
