Newborn babies, healthy people from 1-17 years old and those above 50 should take PCV 13. It protects them against pneumonia. People over the age of 17 and have some chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, chronic lung disease, nephropathy, diabetes, asthma (chronic bronchitis), liver disease and pneumonia are adviced to take a PCV 13, too. So are those who have been smoking and drinking for a long time.   Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1498 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1405 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1583
