The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) in a Tweet has stated that because flu can be a very serious illness, it is recommended that people with heart disease should receive flu shots yearly and as soon as possible.
Dr. Omar Al Tamimi, Senior Consultant Cardiologist at Hamad Medical Corporations' Heart Hospital, said:
"People with heart disease are at higher risk of developing serious flu complications. If you have heart disease it is especially important that you get a flu vaccine every flu season to protect against flu and its potentially serious complications."
"Studies have shown that flu illness is associated with an increase in heart attacks and stroke. Flu vaccines are updated each season to keep up with changing viruses. Because the immunity provided by flu vaccines decreases over time, annual vaccination is needed to ensure the best possible protection against flu.
