When is vaccination against pneumonia needed?

In addition to pneumococci, viruses can cause pneumonia—for example, the annual flu virus. Older people are at greater risk of developing pneumonia. Therefore, people over the age of 65 are recommended to be vaccinated against influenza and pneumococci. This also applies to individuals with weakened immune systems.

Does the vaccine against pneumonia have any side effects?

Serious side effects from the pneumonia vaccine are infrequent. What may occur is fatigue, lack of appetite or fever. Milder side effects arise around the injection site, such as tenderness, swelling and itching. These do not affect everyone and are considered more unusual.
