Is it reasonable for me to disable kdump?

My image is deployed from CentOS 7. systemctl shows that kdump.service failed, and "systemctl status kdump" shows "Error: /boot/vmlinuz-4.9.15-x86_64-linode81 not found."

I surmise that kdump needs a copy of the running kernel in /boot and the default CentOS deployment lacks that. The VM config is set to use latest 64-bit kernel.

I don't think it's likely that I'll need to analyze a kernel dump so I'm thinking I should just disable that feature. If I do need it, how would I get a copy of the vmlinuz file to copy to /boot?
