Of all the things to love about spring — coming out of winter blues, seeing trees start to bud and flowers begin to bloom — another one is how it can help us re-focus on our health.

Between the ability to spend stretches of time outside again, and a renewed sense of purpose as the days start to get longer, spring is the perfect time to reassess our health goals and take stock of how we’ve been doing since the start of the new year.

One of the ways you can reprioritize your health is getting vaccinated against pneumococcal pneumonia. To help you understand your risk, Pfizer is sharing important information about pneumococcal pneumonia and the importance of vaccination.

Pneumococcal pneumonia is a potentially serious bacterial lung disease that can disrupt your life for weeks and can even put you in the hospital or be life-threatening. If you’re 65 or older, or 19 or older with certain underlying medical conditions, like asthma, diabetes or chronic heart disease, you’re at increased risk and vaccination is one of the ways to help protect your health.

People often think that pneumococcal pneumonia can only be caught in the winter or during flu season, but it can strike any time of year. However, vaccination is available all year round, so spring is the perfect time to get vaccinated as you refocus on your health.

Even if you’ve already been vaccinated against pneumococcal pneumonia previously, your healthcare provider may recommend another pneumococcal vaccine for additional protection.

Pneumococcal pneumonia can strike at any time of year, so don’t wait to ask your doctor or pharmacist about pneumococcal pneumonia vaccination and visit: to learn more.
