The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages everyone to get a flu shot. While the flu shot will not prevent you from getting COVID-19, it will help to lesson an overburdened health care system. For more information on the CDC recommendations see their pages on Influenza (flu) Preventative Steps, Key Facts about the Seasonal Flu Vaccine, and People at High Risk for Flu Complications.
