Expect More Seniors to Get BOTH Pneumovax 23 and Prevnar 13 Vaccines
You'll see more healthy adults 65 and older get BOTH Pneumovax 23 AND Prevnar 13 pneumococcal vaccines...based on new recommendations.
Receiving both vaccines may help prevent more cases of pneumonia...leading to fewer hospitalizations, complications, etc.
Encourage seniors to get their pneumonia shots. Consider scheduling their vaccination at the same time as med reviews, med sync appointments, or similar services your pharmacy offers.
