Pneumococcal vaccination

Pneumococcal vaccination

The National Immunisation Program has released its recommendations for vaccination of Australians against Pneumococcal disease with PNEUMOVAX 23. Streptococcus pneumoniae is a bacteria that causes disease like ear infection and pneumonia in adults and children. Vaccination of Australians 65 and over has been done for many years now, but other Australians are also eligible for a government subsidised vaccine. GPCare would encourage you to ask the doctor about your eligibility for a PNEUMOVAX 23 next time you are in.
