Flu vaccination policy in old adults: need for harmonization of national public health recommendations throughout Europe

Baeyens, Jean-Pierre
Published in Vaccine. 2009, vol. 27, no. 2, p. 182-3
Abstract The reading of the paper by Jansen et al. in a recent issue of Vaccine (2008, October 16) showing the "decline in influenza-associated mortality among Dutch elderly following the introduction of a nationwide vaccination programme" was for us the opportunity to present the results of a recently conducted survey of national Flu vaccination policies at a meeting of Presidents and representatives from 24 National Geriatric Societies. Combined results of these two studies advocate for promoting efficient, cost-effective and sustainable vaccine programme endorsed by all the National governments in Europe.
