馃摎 There is increasingly more information about the impact of respiratory infectious diseases on cardiovascular health. These are important because these diseases can trigger or worsen a patient with previous or at-risk cardiovascular disease. We know that vaccines are one of the most effective and cost-effective public health measures, especially considering the high costs of hospitalization and the restricted access in the public hospital system.

馃拤 Here are the 4 vaccines that every cardiology patient should have:
- Influenza vaccine (administered annually).
- Pneumonia vaccine (two doses of two different vaccines separated by one year).
- COVID vaccine (annually updated).
- Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine (single dose, no booster).

Influenza Vaccine: The influenza vaccine, also known as the flu shot, is highly recommended for cardiology patients. Influenza can cause serious complications in people with heart diseases, such as heart failure or coronary artery disease. The vaccine helps prevent infection by the most common flu viruses and reduces the risk of cardiovascular complications. Consult your doctor to find out the best time to get vaccinated and protect your heart.

COVID-19 Vaccine: The COVID-19 vaccine is one of the best tools to combat the current pandemic. For cardiology patients, it is especially important to protect against this virus, as complications can be more severe. The vaccine helps reduce the risk of infection, hospitalization, and COVID-19-related cardiovascular complications. It is essential to follow the recommendations of health authorities and consult with your doctor to safely receive the vaccine. Currently, as of January 2024, the recommended vaccines by the WHO are those marketed by Pfizer and Moderna.

Pneumococcal Vaccine: The pneumococcal vaccine protects against infections caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria, which can cause pneumonia, meningitis, and other serious diseases. Cardiology patients have a higher risk of complications if they contract a respiratory infection, so it is important to consider vaccination against pneumococcus. Consult with your doctor to determine if this vaccine is recommended for you and what the appropriate vaccination schedule is. The commercial forms are called Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Vaccine: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common cause of respiratory infections in children and adults. For cardiology patients, respiratory infections can be especially dangerous as they can trigger cardiovascular complications. The RSV vaccine can help prevent infection and reduce the risk of complications in this patient group. Consult with your doctor if receiving this vaccine is advisable, especially if you have additional risk factors. The available commercial form is called Nirsevimab, especially recommended for those over 60 years old.

Remember that vaccination is an effective and safe preventive measure to protect your health and those around you.

馃挕 It is important to consult your cardiologist for a detailed clinical evaluation 馃┖ and discuss these and other appropriate preventive measures according to your condition 馃拪.
