I had Pneumovax 23 vaccination last week. I am a Diabetic Aged 45 I wasn't sure whether I had a previous dose of Pneumovax 23 vaccination. I now know I had in 2015. Am worried now
Pneumococcal 23 vaccine is recommended for all adults with chronic health conditions including diabetes. A single booster dose is recommended for adults with certain medical conditions resulting in high risk of invasive pneumococcal disease such as chronic kidney and liver disease. This booster dose is recommended 5 years after the first dose. While diabetes isn’t listed as a condition requiring a second dose, it isn’t a contraindication or precaution. Please report any unexpected adverse reactions to your vaccine provider.
