  • Recommendations for Adults

My patient just turned 65 and had a dose of PPSV23 at age 50 due to alcoholism. What is due now?

Under the new recommendations, adults who have ever had at least one dose of PPSV23 do not need another dose of PPSV23 after turning 65. They have two options:

  • One dose of PCV20, or
  • One dose of PCV15
