Mycoplasma pneumonia vs. pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine
Patient : My daughter has asthma, but is in the "temporary remission" phase at 21. She is at college, and there is a bout of mycoplasma pneumonia going around the college. Would getting the vaccine for pneumococcal pneumonia do anything to help prevent her from getting the strain that is prevalent at the college?
Thank you very much for your help!
