Flu Vaccinations Worthless Over 65?

International medical studies reject Sweden's decades-long policy of recommending that people over the age of 65 get annual vaccinations against seasonal flu infections.

The studies claim that there is no evidence that the vaccinations for the old-timers helps - and that it is cheaper and more effective to use other means - such as encouraging people to wash their hands frequently and have good ventilation.
