Pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine

Pneumonia can be deadly and can increase the risk of having a heart attack, as well as worsening existing heart failure. Pneumonia can affect anyone, male or female and at any age but some people are more at risk.

The risk increases as you age and also increases for those with diabetes, heart disease or respiratory diseases, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Those with a weakened immune system such as those taking chemotherapy as also more at risk of pneumonia.

The Pneumococcal vaccine is to help protect against severe infections caused by bacteria that are called pneumococci. Pneumococci can cause infections of the lungs (especially pneumonia) and of the coverings over the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) and in the blood (bacteraemia or septicaemia)

The vaccination can be used from the age two upwards. Please contact us for more information
