Partner has crohns

So new here so not sure if correct place to post, but something me and my partner was discussing. Should I get the flu vaccine each year with her to help prevent getting flu myself for her benefit?

We all get flu and any other vaccines available to protect my child with crohns

he also gets the flu vaccine as well but we were told it’s less effective due to medicines he takes for crohns
Thank you. I have said I will get it for her benefit more than mine as an extra layer of protection and also with my job being so public facing.
