The flu vaccine can provide protection against the consequences of Covid-19. To say it is a study by the Miller School of Medicine of the University of Miami published in the scientific journal “Plos One”.

The work was carried out using the medical records of 37,377 patients from different countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Israel and Singapore.

The analysis revealed that those who had not had the flu vaccine were significantly more (up to 20% more) likely to be admitted to the ICU, to go to the emergency room (up to 58% more), to develop sepsis (up to 45% more), having a stroke (up to 58% more) and deep vein thrombosis (up to 40% more). The risk of death, on the other hand, was not reduced.

While it is not yet known exactly how the flu vaccine provides protection against Covid-19, most scholars speculate that the flu vaccine can boost the innate immune system.

“The continued promotion of the flu vaccine also has the potential to help the global population avoid a possible simultaneous flu and coronavirus epidemic,” said Susan M. Taghioff, a researcher who led the study.
