A new study showing the connection between the flu shot...and heart health

A Canadian study finds there may be a connection between the flu shot and heart health.

The study found people with a history of heart disease had a 13% lower risk of another cardiac event, after they got a flu shot.

This is compared to the heart patients who did not get that protection.

The study is published in the journal of the American Medical Association.
