Seniors & Vaccinations: It's a Match
Updated: Nov 17, 2017
Seniors 65 years of age and older are at greater risk of developing complications from influenza. Patients with chronic disease such as Diabetes, Asthma, and Chronic Heart Disease have an even higher risk of complications. According to the CDC, It’s estimated that between about
70 percent and 85 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths in the United States have occurred among people 65 years and older. For seasonal flu-related hospitalizations, people 65 and older account for between about 50 percent and 70 percent of the estimated total.
