Do I have to get a flu shot this year?

Every year I've gotten a flu shot.  However, this year, since I always wear a mask whenever I leave my house due to COVID-19, I'm wondering if I still need to get a flu shot since the mask prevents me from having the germs of the flu getting into me.

    they are not mandatory, so it's your choice

    the mask doesn't stop viruses from getting into your body. They stop droplets that may have virus in them from being passed on by you to others
