Think you’ll get over the flu in no time? Maybe not.
The risk of dying from a heart attack is one third higher during flu season – why take the risk?
The flu virus can actually cause an inflammatory response in your heart, which can result in blood clots and heart attack. If you’re at risk of heart disease, prevention is the best course of action.
Why worry? Get your flu shot before flu season begins. One quick shot can keep you out of bed and heart healthy throughout the season.
