Prevnar 13 vaccine will be used in certain ADULTS
Prevnar 13 vaccine will be used in certain ADULTS...not just kids.
We usually think of Prevnar 13 as the pediatric version of the pneumococcal vaccine...and Pneumovax 23 as the adult version.
Now Prevnar 13 will be used in adults who have poor immune systems. This is because Prevnar 13 might produce longer-lasting immunity.
