Flu jab that costs 115m a year does not cut death rate in elderly

What a quote:

In November, the jab's co-inventor Australian biochemist Dr Graeme Laver told the Daily Mail the jab did not guarantee protection.

He said 'I have never been very impressed with its efficacy.

'It is better than nothing and I wouldn't want to advise people not to take it, but you can't rely on it doing any good.'

A UK Health Protection Agency study also suggested that flu jabs did not reduce hospital admissions from respiratory infections.
