Don't have a flu shot or anything else without consulting with your Dr.  It is not advisable to have a flue shot even if you have a cold.  So it is obvious not to do anything without your doctor's blessing.

Go ahead and check with your doctor, but it will certainly be recommended.  Having any cardiac problems puts you into the category where you are "at risk".  Better the flu shot than influenza.  The flu shot may make some people sick, but not dead.
