Note: CDC updated the recommendations for pneumococcal vaccination (MMWR, November 2019), due to herd immunity related to vaccination in children. Vaccination can prevent pneumococcal disease which includes not only pneumonia, but also ear infections, sinus infections, meningitis and bacteremia.
PCV13 use in children has led to sharp declines in pneumococcal disease among adults and children. Based on a review of accrued evidence ACIP changed the recommendation for PCV13 use in adults.
ACIP recommends a routine single dose of PPSV23 for adults aged ≥65 years. Shared clinical decision-making is recommended regarding administration of PCV13 to persons aged ≥65 years who do not have an immunocompromising condition, cerebrospinal fluid leak, or cochlear implant and who have not previously received PCV13. If a decision to administer PCV13 is made, PCV13 should be administered first, followed by PPSV23 at least 1 year later
