Who needs a pneumonia vaccination?

A type of pneumococcal disease, pneumonia is a bacterial infection that can be fatal in those with lower resistance.

There are two types of vaccines for pneumonia, one for children under 5, and one called Pneumovax, which the CDC recommends for adults over 65 as well as adults 19-64 who have certain risk factors such as heart, liver or lung disease; alcoholism; asthma; and other conditions that compromise immunity.
