Pneumococcal /Pneumonia vaccine
The pneumococcal vaccine protects against serious and potentially fatal pneumococcal infections. Pneumococcal infections are caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae and can lead to pneumonia, blood poisoning (sepsis) and meningitis.
Anyone can get a pneumococcal infection. But some people are at higher risk of serious illness, so it's recommended they're given the pneumococcal vaccination on the NHS.
