Pneumococcal vaccine: Prevent illness due to your chronic condition which fortunately seems to be stable by staying at home, working from home, washing your hands and avoiding contact with those who are ill. Another PCV vaccine is indicated, but please discuss with your PCP. If you develop symptoms, please notify your PCP and schedule an influenza and Coronavirus screening test.
