Prevnar® 13 is a pneumococcal vaccine that helps protect against 13 types of the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniæ.
Prevnar 13 works by helping the body make its own antibodies against these bacteria. In children from 6 weeks to 5 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), meningitis (inflammation around the brain) and ear infections. In children from 6 years to 17 years of age, it helps protect against diseases such as bacteraemic pneumonia, sepsis or bacteraemia, and meningitis. In adults aged 18 years and older, it helps prevent diseases such as pneumonia (lung infection), bacteraemic pneumonia, sepsis or bacteraemia, and meningitis
