Cardiovascular complications of COVID-19 are not as common as pulmonary complications, while they could be life-threatening. Also, because there is no prevention strategy with appropriate safety and efficacy for these complications, researchers and clinicians are recommended to evaluate different strategies. Effects of influenza vaccines on reducing inflammatory responses and robust immune system, as well as decreasing probability of SARS-CoV-2/influenza co-infection make it a strategy for prevention from cardiovascular events in patients with COVID-19. We suggest further preclinical and clinical researches be conducted to determine the efficacy of influenza vaccines in the reduction of cardiovascular complications in patients with COVID-19 (10).
