Abstract: For the first time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending that all healthy persons aged ≥6 months receive the influenza vaccine. An alternative, new high-dose vaccine is available for elderly patients, although clinical outcomes have not been shown to be superior to standard-dose vaccination. Early-release data have demonstrated influenza vaccination in patients ≥40 years is associated with a 19% reduction in the rate of acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
