We gave PPSV23 to a 66-year-old patient who is newly diagnosed with a medical condition that places him at increased risk for pneumococcal disease and its complications. Should we give him a second dose in 5 years because of his underlying medical condition?

No. However, this person should receive PCV15 or PCV20 one year after PPSV23 if they have no history or an unknown history of receiving a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in the past.
