Expect Seniors to Need TWO Pneumococcal Vaccines

You'll see more seniors 65 and older getting BOTH Pneumovax 23 AND Prevnar 13 pneumococcal vaccines...but not at the same visit.

Receiving both vaccines may help prevent more cases of pneumonia in older folks...leading to fewer hospitalizations, complications, etc.

Encourage seniors to get their pneumonia shots...and if your pharmacy offers comprehensive med reviews, med sync appointments, or similar services, consider scheduling their vaccination at the same time.
