What is Streptococcus pneumoniae? Why do I get it?

Pneumococcus is the most important bacterium that causes pneumonia. According to the WHO, it is estimated that about 1.6 million people worldwide die each year due to Pneumococcus infection.
According to the CDC, over 7,000 cases of invasive Streptococcus pneumoniae infections have occurred in the past 13 years.

Complications caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae?

Streptococcus pneumoniae can cause a range of infections, leading to pneumonia and even serious infections such as sepsis and meningitis. It is also the most common cause of otitis media and sinusitis in young children.
Pneumococcus can also infect areas outside the lungs, causing diseases such as upper respiratory tract inflammation, arthritis, osteomyelitis, pericarditis, hemolytic uremic syndrome, and peritonitis.

How long do I have to wait between medical treatments to get the Pneumococcal Vaccine?

A one-month interval between pneumococcal vaccination and aesthetic treatment is recommended.

Possible Side Effects of Pneumococcal Vaccination?

In a small number of cases, pain, redness and swelling at the injection site may occur, which usually recovers within 2 days of the injection. Serious side effects such as fever and fatigue are rare.
If you experience persistent fever, severe allergic reactions such as difficulty in breathing, shortness of breath, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, etc., you should consult a doctor as soon as possible to determine the cause of the illness and notify the local health center.

Can I leave the vaccination site immediately after receiving the pneumococcal vaccine?

No! You should not leave the vaccination site immediately after receiving the Streptococcus pneumoniae vaccine. You should stay for at least 30 minutes to observe any side effects that require immediate attention after vaccination.
