The pneumococcal vaccination is offered to all patients over the age of 65 and those under the age of 65 who are at increased risk of developing pneumonia.
It is usually a single vaccination.
We will normally contact eligible patients when we have vaccination available. However, if you are in this age group and do not believe you have received a pneumococcal vaccination and should have one, please contact the surgery and we will check for you.
