Pneumococcal (Pneumonia)
What we have to say about your health and well being

Pneumococcal (Pneumonia)

Pneumonia is an infection that can cause serious illness and even death. It affects around one in 100 adults in the UK each year and is most common in autumn and winter. Pneumonia is caused by an infection that irritates the lungs, causing them to become inflamed and swell up with fluid. The most common cause of pneumonia is an infection due to bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae, also known as pneumococcus. It can be spread from person to person through coughing and sneezing.

The S. pneumonia bacteria can also cause meningitis and septicaemia, both of which can leave the patient with permanent brain damage, if they survive. Pneumonia patients are more likely to have heart attacks, and it can worsen heart failure.

The Pneumococcal vaccine can be given alongside the Flu vaccine.

Will the pneumonia vaccine protect me from covid-19?

Covid-19 does cause pneumonia, but it is a different type of pneumonia. Please note that the pneumonia vaccine will not protect you against covid-19 pneumonia.

However, the same public health measures – namely good hand hygiene and correct respiratory etiquette – that protect you from covid-19 can also protect you from respiratory illnesses like flu and pneumonia.

Why should I get vaccinated against pneumonia and flu?

Respiratory illnesses like pneumonia and flu will make you ill enough that you won’t be able to meet your usual work, study and caring commitments. Even mild cases of flu and pneumonia can have lasting effects.

Respiratory illnesses are highly contagious and can be dangerous for those with underlying health conditions. Protect yourself and those around you by getting vaccinated against flu and pneumococcal pneumonia.
