A study, published on June 9 in the Journal of Cardiac Failure, shows heart failure patients who are unvaccinated against COVID-19 are three times more likely to die if infected with the virus compared to fully vaccinated and boosted heart failure patients. The study's corresponding author Anurhada Lala, MD, Director of Heart Failure Research and an Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, said in a press release that these findings can be useful to help educate reluctant patients and encourage them to follow through with full vaccination, including boosters, with the goal of improving their chances of survival.
