Another Reason To Get The Flu Vaccine


Here is another reason to get the flu vaccine. A recent study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal concluded that the flu vaccine significantly lowered the risk for strokes, heart failure, pneumonia and influenza for people with type 2 diabetes.

The study also concluded that people who were vaccinated were 24% less likely to die from any cause. These conclusions were based upon the analysis of the medical records of 125,000 people with Type 2 diabetes.

Have you had your flu vaccine this year?
