Pneumococcal Vaccine

The pneumococcal vaccine protects against serious and potentially fatal pneumococcal infection. 

Anyone can get a pneumococcal infection. But some people are at higher risk of serious illness, so it's recommended they're given the pneumococcal vaccination on the NHS.

These include:

  • adults aged 65 or over
  • children and adults with certain long-term health conditions, such as a serious heart or kidney condition

People aged 65 and over only need a single pneumococcal vaccination. This vaccine is not given annually like the flu jab.

If you have a long-term health condition you may only need a single, one-off pneumococcal vaccination, or a vaccination every 5 years, depending on your underlying health problem. Please contact the practice to book an appointment if you think you're eligible.
