Adult pneumonia vaccine

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) -

In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we explore the health benefits of receiving a adult pneumonia vaccine.

In the Tri-cities Dr. John Clay is recommending the adult pneumonia vaccine.

This vaccine protects against multiple different strains of pneumonia.

It is recommended for  adults over sixty- five, and younger people with diabetes, heart conditions, asthma, COPD, and smokers.    

Check with your doctor at any routine visit or when getting your flu shot if you are interested in getting this vaccine.
