At age 65, should I be getting pneumonia vaccine each year?
One dose of the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine is routinely recommended for adults 65 years of age and older. However a 2nd dose (offered 5 years after the initial dose) is recommended for people with certain medical conditions. We recommend that you speak with your health care provider to find out if you need a 2nd dose of the vaccine and to find out if there are any other vaccines you need.
