Hi Broomhilda,sorry I can't answer your question,but I was hoping to ask you or any others a question about the pneumonia vaccine.
I am pretty sure that I read on another thread that somebody said that the pneumonia vaccination helped them w/thier sinuses or chest congestion,but for the life of me,I can not remember what the topic of the thread was to look it up.
Have any of you ever had similar benefits of the vaccination?Because of some of the cardio meds I take,I can not take any decongestants period.I usually have sinus issues every winter & just have to ride it out.Well,this year,my daughter started school & I am really nervous about getting sicker than ever.
I asked the nurse at my PCP's about getting a pneumonia vaccination when I scheduled my flu shot,but she seemed somewhat skeptical.
I just don't want to be miserable all winter :(
Thanks guys....take care!
