Yes, Pneumonia vaccination is definitely recommended. Although, the official recommendation about frequency of vaccination (need for repeat) is unclear, for patients on biologics, many rheumatologists vaccinate every 5 years.
Are pneumonia vaccinations recommended for patients on biologics?
I am currently on enbrel and methotrexate for my psoriatic arthritis. I see that flu shots are recommended for those on biologics. My question, are pnuemonia vaccines also recommended? Two years prior to my PA diagnosis I had a bad case of bronchial pnuemonia and now have a mild case of asma.
