In times of pandemic it is very important that the vaccination schedule for older adults is respected to prevent serious diseases. They should be immunized against influenza and pneumonia. These vaccines do not protect against the coronavirus, but they reduce the severity of the complications it produces at the level of respiratory infections.
Keep an eye out
Little white heads with more complex chronic diseases such as stage V renal failure, that is, those who are dialyzed, should be immunized against another class of diseases such as hepatitis.
It is important to note that to have a healthy old age it is necessary to take care of yourself from youth. Thus, our mind and body remain in optimal conditions for longer.
There are habits that help people stay strong and in a good mood; a balanced diet, exercise, among others.
