In this podcast, geriatrician Dr. Stefan Gravenstein and cardiologist Dr. Mohammad Madjid offer their thoughts on why influenza takes such a heavy toll among elderly patients with comorbidities, and why it is so important for healthcare providers to identify and immunize these patients against influenza every year.
