How often should diabetic patients receive PPSV23?

With the 2022 published ACIP recommendations for adults, people age 19 or older with diabetes should receive either PCV20 alone or a series of PCV15 followed in one year by PPSV23. No further doses are recommended. People with diabetes who are age 19 through 64 and have already received one dose of PPSV23 may receive either a dose of PCV20 or PCV15 alone; no further doses of PPSV23 are recommended. People with diabetes who have already received PCV13 and have received a PPSV23 vaccination since turning 65 are not recommended to receive any additional doses of pneumococcal vaccine.
