Pneumococcal Disease

I already got the vaccine. Do I need another?

In some cases, yes. In 2013 and 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)  made some new recommendations for pneumococcal vaccination in people age 65 years and older, and in adults age 19 to 64 years with immune system problems. The number and timing of pneumococcal vaccines varies based on your age and risk factors. The best way to determine what’s right for you is to talk to your healthcare professional.
