What is pneumococcal disease?

Pneumococcal disease is caused by bacteria that can spread from person to person through close contact. It can lead to serious infections of the lungs (pneumonia), blood (bacteremia), and meningitis.

Our pneumonia vaccine protects against 23 types of pneumococcal bacteria. It is recommended for all adults 65 years of age and older.

The pneumococcal vaccine in Ontario is an important tool in protecting children from a potentially deadly disease. Pneumococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection that can cause pneumonia, meningitis, and ear infections. It is most common in young children, which is why the pneumococcal disease vaccine is recommended for all children under the age of five in Ontario.

The pneumococcal vaccine is used to help protect against pneumococcal disease. The pneumococcal vaccine is given to children under the age of 5, adults over the age of 65, and people with certain medical conditions. The pneumococcal vaccine is free for these groups of people in Ontario. Pneumococcal vaccines are also available for people who are not eligible for the free vaccine. You can get the pneumococcal vaccine at any of our Travel vaccine Clinic locations.

pneumococcal vaccine for adults and children is highly effective, and it has been shown to reduce the number of pneumococcal diseases by up to 90%. While the pneumococcal vaccine is not mandatory in Ontario, it is highly recommended for all children, adults, and as a pneumonia vaccine for those over 65. Pneumococcal disease can be a very serious illness, and the pneumococcal vaccine is the best way to protect your child from this risk.
