More people to get vaccinated with pneumococcal vaccine

    Public health officials are encouraging more people to get vaccinated with pneumococcal vaccine.

    Pneumococcal (Strep pneumoniae) infections are common and can be fatal. They cause about 80,000 cases of pneumonia...4,000 cases of bacteremia...and 500 cases of meningitis each year.

    Even worse, these infections are getting harder to treat... because of growing resistance to antibiotics.
