high-dose flu vaccine

As we age, our immune system weakens.  Dennis Rochier, MD, Medical Director of Primary Care for Renown Medical Group, talks about a stronger dose flu vaccine (flu shot) available for people over 65, which produces a greater immune response to the flu. And because pneumonia can be a complication of the flu, Dr. Rochier recommends that older individuals receive the pneumonia vaccine in conjunction with the flu vaccine.
