Patient Profiles
Mary is 65 and healthy


Medical history:

  • Healthy 
  • Pneumococcal vaccine-naïve

Age alone is a risk factor for pneumococcal pneumonia1,2

Mary is at a 6.1X greater risk for pneumococcal pneumonia vs healthy adults age 18 to 64 because of her age1,2

One dose of Prevnar 20™ alone can help protect your eligible adult patients age 65 or older3,4


When discussing Prevnar 20 with your eligible patients, tell them that severe allergic reaction to any component of Prevnar 20 or to diphtheria toxoid is a contraindication.

Sean is 35 and living with asthma


Medical history:

  • Asthma 
  • Pneumococcal vaccine-naïve

Sean is at a 5.7X greater risk for pneumococcal pneumonia vs healthy adults in the same age range because he has asthma1,2

One dose of Prevnar 20™ alone can help protect your eligible adult patients age 19-64 with certain underlying medical conditions or other risk factors3,4*

When discussing Prevnar 20 with your eligible patients, tell them that severe allergic reaction to any component of Prevnar 20 or to diphtheria toxoid is a contraindication.

 

Alcoholism, chronic heart/liver/lung disease, cigarette smoking, diabetes, chronic renal failure, nephrotic syndrome, immunodeficiency, iatrogenic immunosuppression, generalized malignancy, human immunodeficiency virus, Hodgkin disease, leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, solid organ transplants, congenital or acquired asplenia, sickle cell disease or other hemoglobinopathies, CSF leak, or cochlear implant.4
Lisa is 47 and takes an immunosuppressant medication


Medical history:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis and treated with an immunosuppressant medication
  • Unknown pneumococcal vaccination status

Lisa is at a 17.3X greater risk for pneumococcal pneumonia vs healthy adults in the same age range because she takes an immunosuppressant medication1,2

One dose of Prevnar 20™ alone can help protect your eligible adult patients age 19-64 with certain underlying medical conditions or other risk factors3,4*

When discussing Prevnar 20 with your eligible patients, tell them that 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.
