HealthDay (6/29, Reinberg) reports research indicates that a yearly influenza vaccine “may help guard against Alzheimer’s disease as well.” After comparing “the risk of Alzheimer’s among nearly one million…seniors who had flu shots and a similar number who didn’t,” researchers concluded that “people who were vaccinated at least once over four years were 40% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s during that period.” The findings were published online in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
