Flu shots are not bad for you. They are made of flu virions that are killed or weakened so your body can build an immunity to it just like you contacted the live flu virus. This way if you do contact the flu virus your body can respond before getting really sick. You may get deminished flu like symptoms when you get the shot because your body does have to build an immune response to it.
Of course, if you contact a strain of flu that is not of the shot you will get that flu.
And, you do not get the shot to keep yourself from getting sick. You get it to protect others that you could spread the flu to that it may be potentially harmful. This could include small children or your elderly parents.
Do you need to get it, no. But if you are in a place where you could pass it to someone whom it could harm, or are in a job where you are around a lot of people then it may be a good idea.
