With all due respect, those people who are against vaccination because they themselves don't understand it are not the ones who should be giving advice. That 10% efficacy is an enormous amount of people. If there are say, 100M people over the age of 65, you've just protected 10,000,000 people from a disease which can be quite easily fatal (usually not directly, but rather the flu weakens them to be vulnerable to complications from other more easily fought off sicknesses) to their age group. To say that since it's less than 50% effective that it's somehow not worth the "risk"/money/anything else is absolutely absurd
