Childhood Pneumococcal Vaccination FAQ

The Health Protection Agency has published a Frequently Asked Questions document that aims to address some of the common issues encountered by healthcare professionals since the introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) into the childhood vaccination schedule.

The document answers many questions including:

  • What to do if Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine (PPV) is given in error in place of PCV
  • Which vaccinations can be safely co-administered
  • How to transition children onto the new schedule when they have part completed the old schedule

Action: This document may prove to be a useful resource when more complicated questions arise in practice.
