Flu/Pneumonia Vaccine Linked to Lowered Risk of Alzheimer’s
Three new studies reported that the 2020 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference suggests that influenza and pneumonia vaccinations are tied to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
The report stated that with at least one flu vaccination, there was a 17% reduction in Alzheimer’s incidence recorded. More frequent vaccinations were associated with another 13% reduction.
Meanwhile, vaccinations against pneumonia between the ages of 65 and 75 showed a 40% reduction on Alzheimer’s disease incidence.
With the whole world still battling against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, preventive measures, such as vaccinations are at the forefront of most public health discussions.
There is still, however, more research to be done on why and how this biological mechanism works in the body.
