This presentation will take a deeper dive into influenza disease and describe its medical burden on older adults, particularly those living with chronic health conditions. We will examine evidence that demonstrates how influenza can increase the risk of undesired cardiovascular outcomes such as acute myocardial infarction and stroke. Additionally, we will discuss the importance of influenza vaccination for overall wellness especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lastly, discuss how health care providers can effectively engage in influenza vaccination efforts by making strong immunization recommendations and handling patient concerns.
