Pneumonia vaccine include PCV 10, PCV 7, PCV 13 and PPSV 23. Infants are scheduled four doses. Adults need only one shot. For people with weak immune, a second shot in 5 years is usually recommended.

About the vaccacine, you could consult the local CDC and Community doctor. Vaccacine should be give comprehensive consideration: immune situation, Pathogen prevalence and access to it.

PPSV-23 is recommended every 5 years for weaker immune people.
