Pneumococcal Disease

How often do I need to get vaccinated?

The number of doses 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. If you are age 65 years or older, or between the ages of 19 and 64 years and have risk conditions such as heart, lung, or liver disease, diabetes, kidney problems, etc., talk to your healthcare professional as soon as possible and get vaccinated.
