Those At Risk

How could pneumonia impact you?

It may take weeks to feel well again after catching pneumonia.2 Even mild cases of pneumonia can leave you with a cough that persists for two to three weeks after treatment.2 Often, people feel tired and are unable to return to their normal daily routine for quite some time.13

Most people will recover fully after treatment, but pneumonia can lead to serious complications in people who are very young, very old or have a long-term medical condition.7

Pneumonia could have dramatic longer-term effects on your life; stopping you from carrying out simple daily activities;6 that are often taken for granted.
