...  according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 49,000 flu-related deaths occur each year.

While anyone can have complications from the flu, people with cardiovascular problems are at higher risk to develop them, which can lead to respiratory failure, pneumonia, heart attack or stroke, and can worsen preexisting conditions like heart failure, diabetes or lung disease, including asthma.

A study published in the medical journal JAMA found that getting a flu vaccine reduced the risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure or other major cardiac events — including death — by about a third over the following year. [emphasis mine]

Your flu shot might prevent a heart attack or stroke
