Broad pneumococcal defense1Prevnar 20™ (Pneumococcal 20-valent Conjugate Vaccine) helps protect against the 20 Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes in the vaccine1

Help protect your eligible patients with a next-generation pneumococcal conjugate vaccine1*

Prevnar 20 delivers the most serotypes in a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine by adding 7 serotypes to Prevnar 13® (Pneumococcal 13-valent Conjugate Vaccine [Diphtheria CRM197 Protein])1,2

Both Prevnar 20 and Prevnar 13 will only help protect against Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes in their respective vaccines.1,2

In the three main clinical trials, safety was evaluated in 4263 participants who received Prevnar 20, which included 1138 adults who were 65 years of age or older.1Developed to help protect against the ongoing threat of pneumococcal disease

Prevnar 20 helps protect your patients against more serotypes than any other 
pneumococcal conjugate vaccine. The serotypes in Prevnar 20 are associated with manifestations of pneumococcal disease like1,5-8:

Certain serotypes of Streptococcus pneumoniae included in Prevnar 20 are associated with outbreaks, antibiotic resistance, and high mortality/fatality rates.9-16

INDICATIONS AND SELECT SAFETY INFORMATION
  • Prevnar 20® (Pneumococcal 20-valent Conjugate Vaccine) is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of pneumonia and invasive disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 8, 9V, 10A, 11A, 12F, 14, 15B, 18C, 19A, 19F, 22F, 23F, and 33F in adults 18 years of age and older
  • The indication of Prevnar 20® for the prevention of pneumonia caused by S. pneumoniae serotypes 8, 10A, 11A, 12F, 15B, 22F, and 33F is approved under accelerated approval based on immune responses as measured by opsonophagocytic activity (OPA) assay. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial
  • Prevnar 13® (Pneumococcal 13-valent Conjugate Vaccine [Diphtheria CRM197 Protein]) is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of pneumonia and invasive disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, and 23F in adults 18 years of age and older

SELECT SAFETY INFORMATION
 
  • Severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any component of Prevnar 20®, Prevnar 13®, or to diphtheria toxoid is a contraindication
  • Safety and immunogenicity data on Prevnar 20® are not available for individuals in immunocompromised groups and vaccination should be considered on an individual basis. Based on experience with pneumococcal vaccines, individuals with altered immunocompetence may have reduced immune responses to Prevnar 20® 
Important Safety Information

Based on experience with pneumococcal vaccines, individuals with altered immunocompetence may have reduced immune responses to Prevnar 20®
  • Immunocompromised individuals or individuals with impaired immune responsiveness due to the use of immunosuppressive therapy may have reduced antibody response to Prevnar 13®
  • For Prevnar 20®, in adults 18 years of age and older, the most commonly reported solicited adverse reactions (>10%) were pain at the injection site, muscle pain, fatigue, headache, and arthralgia. Additionally, injection site swelling was also reported (>10%) in adults 18 through 59 years of age  
  • For Prevnar 13®, in adults 18 years of age and older, the most commonly reported solicited adverse reactions (>5%) were pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site, limitation of arm movement, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, joint pain, decreased appetite, vomiting, fever, chills, and rash
