Pneumococcal Vaccine Recommendations 

  • Age-based: All patients 65 years or older should receive either PCV20 once or PCV15 followed by PPSV23 at least one year later
  • Risk-based: Patients aged 19-64 with a high-risk condition should receive one dose of PCV20 or a combination of PCV15 and PPSV23





HPV Vaccine Recommendations

  • Ages 18-26: Recommended for everyone that is not adequately vaccinated when younger
  • Ages 27-45: Consider discussing vaccination with those that are most likely to benefit based on shared clinical decision-making
    • Vaccination prevents new HPV infections but does not treat existing HPV infections or diseases
    • Most sexually active adults have already been exposed to HPV, although not necessarily all the HPV types targeted by vaccination
    • At any age, having a new sexual partner is a risk factor for acquiring a new HPV infection

Shingles Vaccine Recommendations 

  • Immunocompetent: Ages 50 and older
    • Whether or not a prior episode of herpes zoster is reported
    • Whether or not a prior dose of Zostavax is reported
