Question: 

With Covid in our midst, can I have a Prevnar 13 Vaccine and then 8 weeks later at Pneumonia 23 vaccine? I worry about the severe pneumonia and want to protect myself.

Answer: 

You will find info here about pneumococcal vaccines. Talk to your health care provider or your local pharmacist about these vaccines. You may or may not be eligible for publicly funded (free) vaccines depending on your age and health status. Both vaccines should be available at your local pharmacy for purchase if not.
