Adults 18+
If you are 50 and over, you are at an increased
risk for serious pneumococcal disease –
including pneumococcal pneumonia.
Infants – Adolescents
Vaccines help your child’s immune system
to produce its own antibodies to help
protect him or her from specific diseases.
Are your child’s immunizations up to date?
Prevnar® 13 is a pneumococcal vaccine that helps protect against 13 types of the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae.
Prevnar 13 works by helping the body make its own antibodies against these bacteria. In children from 6 weeks to 17 years of age, it helps protect against diseases such as bacteraemic pneumonia (lung infection with bacteria in the blood stream), sepsis or bacteraemia (bacteria in the blood stream), and meningitis (inflammation around the brain). In adults aged 18 years and older, it helps prevent diseases such as pneumonia (lung infection), bacteraemic pneumonia, sepsis or bacteraemia, and meningitis.
