Vaccine-Preventable Diseases Among Seniors

If you are above 60, or have an elderly parent, you’re probably familiar with going for annual health checkups. But when was the last annual vaccination? Vaccinations are not just for children, as there are many infectious diseases – apart from COVID-19 – that are dangerous to older adults. Consultant Geriatrician Prof Dr Shahrul Bahyah Kamaruzzaman, and Consultant Respiratory Physician Dr Mohd Arif Mohd Zim, join us to tell us more about vaccine-preventable diseases among senior citizens. ‘Come Out Stronger. Protect them Better.’ Flu prevention is an Act of Love brought to you by Immunise4Life.

Listen to Part 1: Vaccines and Infectious Diseases: Learning From History.
