If you are 50 and older, you are at an increased risk for serious pneumococcal diseases – 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, which helps protect your children from 6 weeks to 17 years of age 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).
It also helps prevent diseases such as pneumonia (lung infection), bacteraemic pneumonia, sepsis or bacteraemia, and meningitis in adults aged 18 years and older.

First read the information on Prevnar.ca, and then consult your healthcare professional.
