In brief: They don't

I think you misunderstood my answer. My response was that we have flu because not everyone gets vaccinated, but that everyone SHOULD get vaccinated to prevent flu.

In brief: Because they work

Flu shots decrease the risk of getting influeza and anyone who has had real influenze will tell you they do not want it again.
