  • Pneumococcal
  • Recommendations for Children

ACIP recommends pneumococcal vaccination for adult cigarette smokers age 19 through 64 years. Should we also vaccinate 16-year-olds who smoke?

No. Currently no data exist to indicate that people younger than 19 who smoke are at increased risk of pneumococcal disease.
