A total of 342 people took part in the study. They included 124 patients aged 60 and older who were admitted to a clinic for treatment following a stroke. For each stroke victim, two matched individuals with no history of stroke were enquired. The researchers found that those vaccinated over the past five years had a significantly reduced stroke risk.
