• Pneumococcal
  • Recommendations for Adults

If a patient has a history of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak but no current leak, is this a risk factor and a reason to administer PCV15 or PCV20 to an adult?

No. If there is no longer a CSF leak, neither vaccine is recommended, unless there is another risk factor for invasive pneumococcal disease or an age-based indication.
