How serious is pneumococcal disease?
Pneumococcal disease is a serious disease that causes much sickness and death. In fact, it kills more people in the United States each year than all other vaccine-preventable diseases combined. It is estimated that in the United States in 2007, more than 40,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths occurred from invasive pneumococcal diseases (bacteremia and meningitis). More than half of the cases occurred in adults who were recommended to receive pneumococcal vaccine. Children younger than age 5 and adults older than 65 have the highest incidence of serious disease.
