The influenza vaccine is prepared yearly to adjust for the specific immunologic characteristics that are present in the influenza viruses at that time. It is an inactivated preparation that should be taken annually in the fall, preferably in November. The pneumococcal vaccine has 23 type-specific capsular polysaccharides. Protection lasts 4 years or longer.

Revaccination is rarely recommended because of the higher incidence of local reaction on subsequent immunizations. Both of these injections can be received at the same time in separate injection sites. The nurse should urge older people to receive these vaccines. All health care providers working with older people or high-risk chronically ill people should also be immunized.
