Is this year's flu vaccine effective?

I keep reading stories (1
, and this previous question
) about how bad this year's flu season is. It's been a few months since the vaccine has been available so have they been able to determine if this year's vaccine matches up with the flu strains that are spreading? Meaning, is this year's flu vaccine actually effective? When is that determination made?

I'm planning to get the flu shot but since it's already so late, I was wondering if data about its effectiveness was available.
