I want my patients to be aware of the new pneumonia vaccine. Now recommended for persons over 65 and with chronic medical conditions including diabetes, chronic kidney disease, heart and lung conditions. It increase the number of types of the strep pneumonia types covered. The protection is important and you should take advantage of it. As you may know the recommended vaccines are listed in all of our waiting rooms. I had mine at one of the pharmacies and had a slight amount of soreness that was only for a short time.
The importance of vaccines is a digression that I would like to save for another time
