In brief: Yes
Anyone 6 months of age or older should get a flu vaccination to help prevent catching influenza a or b, or the h1n1 swine flu.
One can skip the vaccination if he is allergic to it. People at higher risk for severe influenza symptoms include pregnant women, the elderly, the immunosuppressed, asthmatics, young children and babies, etc... High-risk persons should definitely get vaccinated.

In brief: Yes
I believe that everyone should get the vaccine each year. The illness can be severe and sometimes deadly.
The vaccine is generally well tolerated.
