Fortunately for us, being properly vaccinated can stop that journey before it ever starts.

If you are vaccinated against pneumonia, your risk of hospitalization for that disease goes down. Because you’re less likely to be hospitalized for pneumonia, you’re also less likely to have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Just another example of the value of vaccination.
