Can Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax (23) be given at the same time...
Can Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax (23) be given at the same time in someone over 60. A pharmacist recommended this to us
No, Prevnar 13 (PCV13) and Pneumvax 23 (PPV23) should not be given at the same time. Unimmunized individuals should receive PCV13 vaccine first followed by PPV23 at least 8 weeks later. If PPV23 has already been administered, PCV13 should be administered at least one year later. Read more here about pneumococcal disease and vaccine.
