Torn on regular flu shot for 2 year old???

My daughter will be 2 in October. Last year she did not get the flu shot because I really never took her out and she is not in daycare so the doctor said she should be fine. I have never gotten the flu shot and have never gotten the flu. I just don't know if I should give her the shot or not? I will not give her the swine flu vaccine. I do vaccinate her with the regular vaccine schedule. I know this is such a debatable issue and I do not mean to start up a big thing...just looking for some advice or input???

Do the kids usually get sick after getting the vaccine?
Is the shot even the current strain of the flu?

Thanks in advance!
