I was told by my Doctor that my pneumonia jab was for life but I see on Healthtap Doctors say pneumonia vaccine is needed every 5 or 6 yrs is it True?

Pneumovax . Your doctor is right, but, certain high risk patients would need to take the pneumonia vaccine every 5 years, as people who lost their spleen, also new recommendations for adult immunizations states that some patients > 65 years, would need a repeat every 5 years. It won't harm if you take it every 5 years, best wishes.
