Question: 

I got the free pneumonia shot last November . When can I get the other pneumonia shot which I have to pay .

Answer: 

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends the Pneumococcal Conjugate (Pneu-C-13) vaccine for adults with medical conditions resulting in high risk of invasive pneumococcal disease. Discuss your medical conditions and the Pneu-C-13 vaccine with your health care provider. 

The Pneu-C-13 vaccine should be administered at least one year after any previous dose of Pneumococcal Polysaccharide (Pneumo-P-23) vaccine. The Pneu-C-13 vaccine is available for purchase from pharmacies and travel health clinics.
