Wednesday Daily Piece: Vaccination Update for Adults Aged 65 and Older

Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) no longer recommends routine administration of pneumococcal 13-valent conjugate vaccine (PCV-13) in adults aged 65 and older. Rather, adults aged 65 and older are advised to engage with their healthcare provider in shared clinical decision making regarding PCV-13.
