I would say no, for now. She's 81/2 months pregnant, the chance of her getting the flu before the delivery is very slim.
However, after the delivery, both you and your girlfriend should seriously weigh getting the vaccine because you will have a newborn during the height
of the cold and flu season.
Now, if you hardly ever go anywhere or have very limited exposure, maybe you could skip it.
But, if you are out and about, work with the public or have contact with school-aged children, you should consider it as a means of providing a buffer
between the baby and possible exposure because you sure would not want to give the baby the vaccine.
