Default Flu shots?

Does anyone know if we should get flu shots since we're ttc? I know they recommend that pregnant women get them and I was thinking that I'd wait and see if I get pregnant before I got one but now with the shortage I don't know what to do. I'm going to try calling my doctor to see what they recommend but thought I'd see if anyone here had heard anything.
Oh just 1 more week to go in this 2ww. Yeah!!

I thought you weren't supposed to get the flu shot if you were pregnant. Please let us know what you find out.

Last year I got one, my first ever! because I was hoping to get pregnant. The clinic came around my work at a time I knew I wasn't pregnant, so I went ahead and got it as a precaution.

Not sure you should get one, and with the shortage, it's important that people who are at risk get them first.
