Influenza and colds are different things.  Colds are mild infections caused
 by a very large number of viruses and therefore difficult to vaccinate against
Flu is caused by influenza viruses and you can vaccinate against them, but the
 vaccines are protective
against speciofic strains only and therefore have to be reformulated every year
according to which strians are present in that year.
Finally you should not confudse vaccines which are protective measures with 
therapeutics which treat diseases.  
Still, as we know from reading this list, vaccines are just a conpiracy by drug 
companies, the CIA, MI5, alien visitors and OJ Simpson to weaken the immune 
systems of american children.
