I am not 100% positive but I think it is important to get your flu shot specially when you have cancer. Your immune system is already low when you you start treatment so it important to do what you can..

If you are not in treatment right now, it is the perfect time for you to get the flu shot. You have a much higher chance of getting infect when you are trying to fight the cancer off, so it is important to do what you can!
