In brief: It's good!

The flu can make some people much sicker than others.
It can lead to pneumonia, ; make existing medical conditions worse. It can cause diarrhea ; seizures in infants/children. Each year thousands of people in the United States die from flu, ; many more are hospitalized. The flu vaccine is the best protection we have-esp against its complications. It helps prevent spread to/from others. It's safe.
