Nov. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- Paradise In-Home Care and the Paradise Gardens Care Homes are encouraging people to get their flu vaccine shots this year. Each winter, the cases of flu amongst the U.S. population skyrocket. For the elderly and the very young, the consequences of this can be quite severe, even deadly. Not only the very young and very old should consider getting their flu shots, either. If you are around these segments of the population, you should also get your flu shot in order to help avoid transferring the disease. Even if you are not going to suffer the major brunt of this illness, it is pretty easy to spread it, so you will want to protect the people that you are around as well as yourself.
It might surprise you that new research is saying that having your flu vaccine can even prevent health problems in other areas of your health, too. For example, two new and separate studies are indicating that the flu vaccine can reduce your immediate risk of heart attack and stroke by as much as 50 percent. If this isn’t enough information to help sway you to get your flu shot this year, consider this: the two studies looked at elderly folk with an average age of 60 years old, many of whom already were suffering from heart disease. With the flu vaccine, it was found that the elderly had their chances of suffering a major problem of this sort reduced in a drastic fashion.
Heart and cardiovascular diseases are one of the biggest killers within the U.S. population. But this new evidence indicates that the severity of the heart disease can be temporarily reduced if a flu shot is given. This is really good news for the elderly population since they are recommended to get their flu shots on a yearly basis anyway. This double whammy of prevention measures provides a big reason for you to protect yourself this winter season. If you haven’t gotten your flu shot yet, you should get it as soon as possible in order to boost your health levels by as much as possible.
