Prevnar 13® is a vaccine that is indicated for children 6 weeks through 5 years of age, and it helps protect against 13 of the most common strains of pneumococcal bacteria that cause IPD, such as pneumococcal meningitis, today.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which children 5 years of age and younger should be vaccinated with Prevnar 13®?

  • Children 2 months to 5 years of age
  • Children 15 months to 5 years who have already received 4 doses of Prevnar® (Pneumococcal 7-valent Conjugate Vaccine [Diphtheria CRM197 Protein]) can get coverage from the additional serotypes in Prevnar 13® with one additional dose.
    • The immune response from this dose of Prevnar 13® might be lower for the
      6 additional strains (types 1, 3, 5, 6A, 7F, and 19A) than if your child had
      received the full 4 doses of Prevnar 13®.
    • Prevnar® is a pediatric vaccine that was routinely given to infants and young children from 2000 until mid-2010 to help protect against 7 strains of pneumococcal bacteria.

Talk to your child’s doctor about the risks and benefits of Prevnar 13®. Only a health care provider can decide if Prevnar 13® is right for your child.
