Should people who are HIV positive receive pneumococcal vaccines?

Yes. People with HIV infection are at high risk of pneumococcal disease. The pneumococcal vaccination recommended depends on the patient’s age and prior pneumococcal vaccines received. The CDC PneumoRecs VaxAdvisor mobile app can be helpful for evaluating the needs of a specific patient.
