The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has completely revised the recommendations for pneumococcal immunization in adults for 2022. The change was made possible by the approval of 2 new conjugate vaccines that cover pneumococcal serotypes that significantly contribute to the burden of invasive pneumococcal disease. This is important because some individuals, including older adults or those with certain chronic medical conditions or immunocompromising conditions, are at increased risk for pneumococcal disease and its serious, sometimes life-threatening complications.
