Pneumonia Vaccination (Pneumococcus)

Your pharmacist owner affiliated to the Brunet network is happy to provide you with health services tailored to your needs.

Pneumonia is caused by a bacterium that reaches the lungs. This infection can have serious consequences for more vulnerable populations. Many people are hospitalized each year because of the infection, some of whom will die from it. Vaccination against pneumonia is the best way to protect yourself against this infection. According to the Quebec Immunization Protocol, the vaccine is recommended for children as early as 2 months of age in the regular immunization schedule, and for those at higher risk, such as those 65 years of age and older, and those with chronic diseases.

You can discuss it with your pharmacist or the pharmacy nurse. The on-site nurse can administer it to you.
