If you’re 19 or older, here are the facts.
Certain chronic conditions (see table below) may increase the risk of pneumococcal pneumonia—even if the condition is under control. The risk increases further with more than one condition.

Did you know?
You can get pneumococcal pneumonia any time of year, and it can actually worsen certain chronic conditions. So don't delay. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist today for more information.
Your health conditions may affect your risk for pneumococcal pneumonia.
See below to learn if your health condition combined with your age could increase your risk.
Other health factors can increase your risk.
Like smoking. Or certain cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin disease, generalized malignancy, or multiple myeloma. Radiation and chemotherapy can too. These health factors increase your risk for pneumococcal pneumonia, compared to healthy adults.
One vaccine. One dose. One visit.
Prevnar 20 was designed to help protect adults just like you from 20 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. Prevnar 20 is a one-time dose, so you don't have to get it every year.
Even if you’ve already been vaccinated with another pneumonia vaccine, ask your doctor or pharmacist if Prevnar 20 could help provide additional protection.
