High Dose Influenza Vaccine Leads to Lower Rate of Hospitalization From Respiratory Illnesses in Nursing Home Residents

CLEVELAND – In the largest nursing home study to date on the effect of a high dose (HD) flu vaccine, researchers found that vaccines with four times the antigen of standard flu (SD) vaccines significantly reduced the risk of respiratory and all-cause hospitalization during flu season. The study found a 12.7 percent relative reduction in the incidence of hospitalization for respiratory illness, such as pneumonia, and an 8.5 percent reduction of all-cause hospitalizations among residents on Medicare who lived at nursing homes that received HD instead of SD flu vaccines. The findings are published in the journal The Lancet Respiratory Medicine.

According to Todd Russell, MD, FACS, a ProMedica Physician with Jobst Vascular Institute, Rita’s was a silent but very serious risk. He explained, “Her abdominal aortic aneurysm was asymptomatic [showing no symptoms], it was an enlargement of her artery and because it was enlarging significantly, there was a risk the artery wall could become very weak and rupture.”
