Streptococcal pneumonia is a serious and potentially life-threatening infection caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae. It can cause severe respiratory symptoms, such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing and chest pain. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself from this dangerous disease. The Streptococcal Pneumonia Vaccine is an effective and safe way to prevent pneumococcal infections. This vaccine helps to stimulate the body’s immune system so that it can fight off the bacteria before it causes any harm. It also reduces the risk of complications associated with pneumococcal infections, such as meningitis, sepsis and bacteremia.
