Pneumococcal or Pneumonia vaccine

The pneumococcal vaccination (or pneumonia vaccination) protects against potentially fatal infections such as pneumonia, septicemia, and meningitis. This vaccination is free on the NHS for people who are 65 and over.

If you are eligible for the pneumonia vaccine, you will be notified by your GP. The frequency of the jab depends on your age and the reason you need it.
