PCV13 followed by...: In general, healthy people (ask doctor at annual check-up for details) don't get pneumonia vaccines unless less than age 6 years, or past one's 65th birthday. People with certain types of health conditions can get 1 dose of PCV13, followed by a dose of PPSV23 after 8 weeks or longer. If a person got PPSV23 first, then wait at least 1 year before getting PCV13. Recommendations may vary by country.
