According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Pneumococcal disease is an infection caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria, sometimes referred to as pneumococcus. This disease causes thousands of infections every year in the United States. It's more common in children, but it's most likely to cause serious complications in adults. Pneumococcus can cause many types of illnesses, including:

  • Ear infections
  • Sinus infections
  • Meningitis
  • Bacteremia

Antibiotics can treat pneumococcal disease. However, many types of pneumococcal bacteria have become resistant to some of the antibiotics used to treat these infections. The best way to prevent pneumococcal disease is to get the vaccines. Research is being conducted to test the safety and tolerability of pneumococcal vaccines.
