  • Recent research from UTHealth Houston suggests that the administration of some vaccinationsincluding those for tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), shingles (herpes zoster), and pneumococcus, are associated with a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Previous research revealed that individuals who had received at least one influenza vaccine had a 40% lower probability of developing Alzheimer’s disease compared to those who had not received any vaccination, leading researchers to investigate other vaccines.
  • These new findings are particularly notable as they point to a practical and accessible way for Alzheimer’s prevention, emphasizing the advantages of routine adult vaccinations.

In a new study whose results appeared in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, researchers found that several vaccines commonly given to adults were similarly linked to a decreased likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
