Prevention is the best defence, and vaccination one of the best ways to do it, especially against an infection.
Streptococcus pneumoniae (bacteria) is one of the main culprits, resulting in pneumonia and meningitis (brain infection), in both the young and old. The disease itself can be debilitating, carrying high risks of morbidity and mortality in those who are affected.
The elderly takes the greatest hit due to their poor physiological reserves, complicated by the likely presence of other co-morbidities such as hypertension, diabetes, COPD (smoker’s lungs) etc.
As such, we highly recommend vaccinating those > 65 years of age, with high risk factors. It is a medisave-claimable vaccine for these individuals. Do not hesitate to seek a consult with us today!
