Question: 

I had the pneumococcal polysaccharide immunization in 2014 at age 43 and im wondering if I can go rest of my life without getting it again. I'm in good physical health

Answer: 

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization recommends the following:  "For adults who received Pneu-P-23 vaccine before 65 years of age, an additional dose of Pneu-P-23 vaccine should be administered at 65 years of age, at least 5 years after any previous dose". More information is needed to determine your eligibility for the publicly funded vaccine. We recommend that you contact your health care provider to discuss.
