Pneumococcal vaccines are vaccines against the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae. Their use can prevent some cases of pneumonia, meningitis, and sepsis.

It was announced in February 2006 that the UK government would introduce vaccination with the conjugate vaccine in children aged 2, 4 and 13 months.[12][13] This included changes to the immunisation programme in general.[14] In 2009, the European Medicines Agency approved the use of a 10 valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine for use in Europe.[15] The 13 valent pneumococcal vaccine was introduced in the routine immunization schedule of the UK in April 2010.

Flu and pneumonia have been deadly this winter. I've never had this vaccine and there cant be many who have. They only started the vaccination program 7/8 years ago.

Do you think its worth asking for [shrug65465.gif]

Well. I get my jab every year and have not had flu since 1962.The bout I had recently was very half hearted and probably weakened because of my jab.

The pneumonia jab is every five years, I think, and I have not had pneumonia either, ever.

Consider!

You spent a full week (and more) banging on about your flu and now you tell us it was nothing more than a half hearted cold :rolleyes:

Ah! But I was manfully struggling to attend to Mrs D, who had the real thing; in spades.

That was harder than laying in bed, sniffing.

I, being a man, just struggled on!
