I have following table on beamer slide. It overflows into right margin. How can I accomodate it

\documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}
\section {Rockall score}
\begin{frame} {Prognosticate rebleeding and mortality}
\begin{flushleft}
\begin{tabular}{c||cccc}
\hline
Variable        &   0               &           1           &       2               &       3   \\  \hline \hline
Age         &    $<60$                  &        60-79                          &         $>  80 $                  &                        \\
Vitals      &  $P<100$, $ SBP>100$  &     $P>100, SBP>100$  &   $SBP<100$           &           \\
Comorbidity & No major          &                       & IHD, CCF, other major &  Ranal, liver failure , malignancy \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{flushleft}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

Here are a couple of options- both have a slight modification to your original table

\begin{tabular}{c||p{.2\textwidth}p{.2\textwidth}p{.2\textwidth}p{.2\textwidth}}

and I have broken a couple of lines in some of the cells- such manual tweaking is fairly typical when working with tables, especially in something as important as a beamer presentation.

Use makebox

first modification

Use resizebox

second modification

\scalebox {0.6}{} also worked, though I am not sure it is correct way to do it

\begin{frame} {Prognosticate rebleeding and mortality}
\scalebox {0.6}{
 \begin{tabular}{c||cccc}
\hline
Variable        &   0               &           1           &       2               &       3   \\  \hline \hline

Vitals      &  $P<100$, $ SBP>100$  &     $P>100, SBP>100$  &   $SBP<100$           &           \\
