  • Pneumococcal
  • Recommendations for Adults

My patient just turned 65 and has never had a pneumococcal vaccine. What are my options now?

For adults 65 years and older with no prior pneumococcal vaccination or whose previous vaccination history is unknown, you have two options:

  • One dose of PCV20 alone, or
  • One dose of PCV15 followed by a dose of PPSV23 one year later
