Although we often focus on childhood vaccines, adult vaccination is often overlooked. Invasive pneumococcal disease, which can cause a whole variety of illnesses, is a preventable disease. If you are 65 years of age and older, or have a chronic illness, immunisation with pneumococcal vaccine is recommended and safe. Please ask your GP or nurse for more information, or learn more information here. As part of our quality improvement strategy, we are actively trying to measure and improve the number of patients appropriately immunised and would appreciate your help.
