Pneumococcal Vaccine
The Pneumococcal vaccine is available from £30 as a single dose. It may also be available free on the NHS for certain groups such as under 2 years, over 65s or with certain health conditions.
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs which can be caused by bacteria or virus. Although initial symptoms may be like a flu, it can quickly progress causing severe breathing difficulty. People with higher risk of infection, respiratory or heart problems and the elderly can be more at risk of severe illness, which can also lead to death without proper treatment.
The vaccine is given as an injection into the upper arm.
Only one dose is needed for full protection and no further booster doses are required.
Following vaccination, you may experience a sore, achy or heavy arm due to the injection. There can also be some pain, soreness, redness or bruising at the injection site. Other side-effects include flu like symptoms such as temperature, tiredness, aches and pains, headaches and dizziness.

There is a very small chance that some people can be allergic to the vaccine and cause anaphylaxis. This is extremely rare and the risk of this is no different to an allergy to any other medication. Our vaccinators always check to make sure you are not at risk of any allergies prior to the vaccine and are prepared to manage allergies if needed.
