[br]Your post is very interesting. I believe it's very cool that the annual flu shot can reduce the chances of a heart attack. I myself get the flu shot every year. However, I feel as if people knew that flu shots can avoid heart attacks, then people are more likely to get them. People will think about the flu shot more. Do you have any statistics that show more people getting flu shots after this article was published? If so, do post the link in this forum.[br]

According to a seven year study, getting a yearly flu shot decreases your chances of having a heart attack by twenty percent. In addition, earlier vaccinations are more beneficial. Getting your vaccination from September to mid November decreases your chances of a heart attack by twenty-one percent as opposed to a twelve percent decrease if you get your vaccination later in the season. [br][br]I don't often get flu shots myself, and I know many people who also usually skip the annual shot. Do you feel like the knowledge that the flu shot also decreases the chance of a heart attack makes you more likely to get them?[br][br][img=120x120]http://www.zmescience.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/swine-flu-vaccine.jpg[/img][br]
