New Pneumonia Vaccine Timing for Adults Pathway Resource Available

HealthInsight offers a new resource to help clinicians assess and administer pneumococcal vaccine for older adults and younger patients at higher risk for pneumonia and its complications. The Pneumococcal Timing for Adults Pathway assists with decision making for the administration of both PCV13 and PPSV23 for adults age 65 and older as well as those age 19 to 64 with underlying conditions. 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also offers a Pneumococcal Vaccine Timing for Adults algorithm, which provides more in-depth scenarios and guidance.
Pneumococcal vaccine is one of the vaccines more difficult to assess for due to the more involved requirements in administration timing and combination of the two vaccines.
