Abstract

Ageing represents an extremely current issue globally, and involves especially European populations. It is estimated that in Europe by the year 2025, about a third of the population will be over 60 years of age, hence the imperative for "healthy ageing". Vaccinations in seniors, in contrast with paediatric vaccinations, are very often neglected even by health care workers. This article aims to provide an evidence-based guide to establish vaccinations in seniors as one of the pillars of Public Health in the future.
