  • Pneumococcal
  • Adults who have had PCV13

We have a patient who has had PCV13 as an adult and is due for PPSV23. Our pharmacy does not have PPSV23 in stock but does have PCV20. Should we send the patient elsewhere?

That is not necessary. Although PPSV23 is recommended, CDC has stated that PCV20 may be used if PPSV23 is unavailable.
