Important new study on the benefit of the pneumonia vaccine

For infants across Ontario, pneumonia hospitalizations and related costs were eventually cut almost in half – 45% & 46% respectively – after the province approved a vaccination program for that age group. In addition, pneumonia hospitalizations also declined “substantially” for vaccine-ineligible older children and people over age 65, due to herd immunity. This reduction for the elderly is quite significant because they have a higher risk of death from pneumonia hospitalization than for any other reason, according to the Harvard Medical School.
