The pneumonia vaccination helps protect against pneumococcal infections which are caused by the bacterium Streptococcus Pneumoniae. A pneumococcal infection can affect anybody and can lead to a range of serious illnesses including pneumonia, septicaemia, and meningitis.
The vaccine works by making your body produce antibodies that fight pneumococcal bacteria and the NHS estimates the pneumococcal vaccination is between 50 – 70% effective.
