Prevnar Dosage

General Information on Dosing With Prevnar

Some considerations for people getting Prevnar include the following:
 
  • The healthcare provider should shake the vial well before injecting Prevnar and should not combine Prevnar with any other vaccines in the same syringe. Other vaccines can be given at the same time (just not in the same syringe).
     
  • Children can be vaccinated if they have a minor illness, such as the common cold. However, the vaccine should be postponed if the child is moderately or severely ill.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Prevnar dosing in general, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
