Teenage boy dies from flu after receiving flu vaccine

I noticed this story recently:

"Lyons, N.Y. - A teen in Wayne County died Wednesday at Strong Memorial Hospital from a confirmed case of Influenza B.

Tyler Finn, 14, of Newark, came down with the flu on January 30, followed by a viral infection he could not fight."

and this:

"The Wayne County Public Health Department said even though Finn received a flu vaccine, several complications led to the death.

Health leaders said while the vaccine is not 100 percent effective, it is still the best defense against the seasonal flu."
