There are too many Flu Deaths in the United States each year.

On average, there are about 36,000 flu deaths per year in the United States. This number includes people who die from the flu itself and those who develop complications from the flu, such as pneumonia, and then die from that illness.

The CDC estimates that between 5 and 20 percent of the United States population gets the flu each year.
