Consult her pediatri: Children with the flu are much more vulnerable to complications, such as pneumonia. Painful breathing could be a sign of pneumonia, it could also be related to muscle pain from severe coughing episodes. She needs to be checked, don't take any chances.

One season: The influenza vaccine is developed against influenza strains that are thought to be the one (s) most likely to cause an influenza epidemic. If the "guess" is correct then the vaccine might protect >60%. If not, then protection might not be that high. The more people who receive vaccine increases herd immunity making it less likely that there will be an epidemic. Also decreases febrile colds by 50%.
