In our series highlighting individual diseases we currently vaccinate for, today we cover pneumococcal disease. We’ll tell you just how common it is, how serious (or not serious) it can be, and what your child’s risk is of catching pneumonia or meningitis from this infection. We’ll break down the risks and side effects of the vaccine, both for kids and for the elderly, and explain why there are four recommended doses on the infant vaccine schedule.
