Influenza — commonly called the flu — has been around for centuries. But it wasn’t until the 1940’s that an effective vaccine was created.
Influenza vaccines are proven to be a safe and effective way to help people stay healthy, prevent illness, and even save lives. However, as people age, they tend to be at higher risk of complications from influenza.
Influenza can lead to many more complications for people who have heart, lung or other health conditions, which can sometimes even be fatal. In fact, your risk of hospitalization increases by 55% if you have an underlying health condition! That’s why seniors are advised to get a vaccine every year.
Unfortunately, standard influenza vaccines are generally about half as effective among older adults compared to younger adults. Which is why we work hard to bring you the high-dose version at an affordable cost.
The high-dose influenza vaccine has proven to be far superior to the standard dose vaccine. Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) has stated that: “high-dose TIV should be offered over standard-dose TIV to persons 65 years of age and older.”
