Prevention of pneumoccoccal pneumonia through vaccination

Vaccination has been proven to be a successful method for helping to prevent some strains of pneumococcal pneumonia.1 It is worth considering because pneumonia can be a serious and long-lasting illness.2,3

Vaccination can help reduce the risk of pneumococcal pneumonia,4 the most common type of bacterial pneumonia.2

Speak to your pharmacist, doctor or nurse about pneumococcal pneumonia vaccination. Some people are eligible to receive a pneumococcal pneumonia vaccination on the NHS. For people not eligible for an NHS vaccination, as with other vaccines, they may choose to pay privately to help protect themselves.
