“Flu and pneumonia vaccinations linked to lower Alzheimer’s incidence,” by Alicia Lasek, McKnight’s LTC News
“A single flu vaccination is tied to a 17% reduction in Alzheimer’s incidence, and more frequent flu vaccinations confer an additional 13% risk reduction, scientists at the University of Texas have found. The effect was strongest for those who got their first flu shot at a younger age (age 60 versus 70, for example).”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Or are people prone to Alzheimer’s maybe less likely to think about getting vaccinations?
