Pneumonia Vaccination Now Available

Posted at September 01, 2015

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recently announced a new recommended standard to protect adults 65 years and older from acquiring pneumonia. Our office now offers the new vaccination, Prevnar 13, used to protect adults 65 years and older. This vaccination is recommended for patients who:
a.) have an unknown vaccination history of pneumonia

b.) are 65 years or older and had a vaccination for pneumonia at least a year ago

c.) had a pneumonia vaccination before they turned 65 years old

Call our office if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to get this vaccination!
