The investigators found that having a flu shot was associated with a 24 percent lower risk of stroke. However, this association does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship. The stroke risk reduction was strongest if a person received a shot early in the flu season, the study authors noted.

Adults over 50 who got flu vaccines during a hospitalization had a 28% lower risk of a heart attack the following year. They also had a 47% lower risk of a. The researchers analyzed data from more than 47,000 people in the United Kingdom who suffered a stroke or mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack) between 2001 and 2009. The investigators found that having a flu shot was associated with a 24 percent lower risk of stroke. However, this association does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship.

Research Highlights: The rate of seasonal flu vaccinations among people over age 50 and nursing home residents is extremely low, and those who do get the flu vaccine can significantly lower their risk of heart attack, TIA (transient ischemic attack), death and cardiac arrest. Flu vaccination in high-risk patients was associated with a 28% reduced risk of heart attack, a 47% reduced risk of TIA. A new study found that people vaccinated against the flu had a lower risk of a major cardiovascular event such as a heart attack or stroke, compared with those who received no flu vaccine.

The investigators found that having a flu shot was associated with a 24 percent lower risk of stroke. However, this association does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship. The stroke risk reduction was strongest if a person received a shot early in the flu season, the study authors noted. And those who consistently got their annual flu shot had an even lower risk, Amran said.

For people between ages 75 and 84, this translated to an almost 6% lower Alzheimer’s risk over 16 years. Getting the flu shot may do more than protect against the flu and its lingering aftermath. It also lowers a person’s odds of a having heart attack, stroke, heart failure, or other major cardiac event—including death—by about a third over the following year. What’s the connection between flu and cardiovascular problems? The body mounts an impressive immune response against the flu.

That. Flu vaccination is especially important for people with heart disease or who have had a stroke because they are at higher risk for complications from flu. Vaccination has been associated with lower rates of some cardiac events icon among people with heart disease, especially among those who had had a cardiac event in the past year.
