So if you got the flu shot does that mean you’re less likely to get Coronavirus?

From my limited understanding, no, not at all. The two viruses (influenza vs. Coronavirus) are different enough that a flu shot will not provide meaningful immunity to coronavirus. My background is: MSc in respiratory physiology, specifically working with human lung tissue and respiratory viruses.

No however, you should get your flu vaccine so your immune system will not be comprised should you encounter influenza and corona virus

This is a great point - what people don’t realize is that you can have multiple viral infections at the same time. It’s called a super-infection, and it’s fairly common. Having influenza or even the common cold (rhinovirus) could negatively interact with coronavirus to result in significantly worse health consequences.

As already written above, the shot does not protect from corona. But: Definitely get the flu shot. Some symptoms are similar to corona and each flu case less will free up medical capacities (testing and treatment) for corona patients. It also will reduce super-infections (e.g., flu+CORVID-19)
