Our patient is a 78-year-old female who received PCV13, then received PPSV23 approximately 10 weeks later. She had not received PPSV23 previously. Is the PPSV23 dose valid, or does it need to be repeated?

Even though the interval was shorter than the recommended one year, the dose of PPSV23 should be counted and does not need to be repeated. In the future, please note the ACIP recommends that the routinely recommended interval between PCV13 or PCV15 and PPSV23 is 1 year, and the minimum interval is 8 weeks.
