They found seniors who got the flu vaccine cut their risk of dying from the illness in half! Flu vaccine also reduced their risk of hospitalization from pneumonia and the flu by 27 percent. Thirty-six thousand people die each year in the United States from the flu, most of them are elderly. Only 65 percent of people over age 64 get a flu shot each year, be one of them!
