Discusses how preventing illnesses and deaths for older populations (most of whom are women) through the use of vaccines is a leading public health challenge. Acknowledges that our understanding about how age and sex affect the immune system is limited, and basic and translational research aimed at improving vaccines and immune responses of older persons is needed. Argues that fully implementing current vaccine recommendations, particularly those for influenza and pneumococcal vaccines, can save thousands of lives and prevent illnesses in persons over 50 years of age.
