Super jab ‘could protect elderly against heart attack or stroke AND flu’

A ONCE a year super jab could protect the elderly against heart attack or stroke, as well as flu, new research suggests.
Experts say an experimental injection – four times more powerful than a normal vaccination – could slash hospital admissions for common but potentially lethal conditions.

Each year thousands are admitted with pneumonia, bronchitis and influenza with death rates higher because of weakened immune systems.

Tests on almost 40,000 nursing home residents in the US found the “quadruple vaccine” dramatically slashed hospital admissions for illnesses including cardiovascular disease.
