The benefits of vaccination in older adults are well documented yet there is poor uptake of such preventive measures, and one of the main reasons in France is a lack of recommendation and support from healthcare professionals. To address this issue a multidisciplinary group of experts has developed an educational tool, Vaxisenior, to assist in the training of physicians/healthcare workers who can act as advocates for immunization programs. The tool comprises of eight sections (general introduction; immunosenescence; diphtheria-tetanus-poliomyelitis; influenza; pneumococcus; pertussis; herpes zoster; and vaccines for travelers). In addition, it includes national immunization schedules and recommendations, practical information regarding opportunities to expand vaccine coverage that is convenient to the patient and a questions and answers section covering topics relating to particular usage and responsibilities. Implementation of vaccination policies for older adults is a major issue and will require extensive promotional campaigns, as well as active support from healthcare and public health professionals to improve overall vaccine coverage.
