What is pneumonia?

Pneumonia is an infection, which anyone can catch, that can cause serious illness and even death. It affects around one in 100* adults in the UK each year and is most common in autumn and winter. 

Pneumonia is caused by an infection that irritates the lungs, causing them to become inflamed and swell up with fluid. The most common cause of pneumonia is an infection due to bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae, also known as pneumococcus. It can be spread from person to person through coughing and sneezing.


How we can help protect your employees against pneumonia

The Boots Pneumonia Vaccination Service provides long-lasting protection against 13 of the most common strains of Streptococcus pneumonia bacteria.

People who smoke, those with other health conditions (such as asthma, or a kidney or liver condition) or have recently had flu are more at risk.* With recovery time taking up to three months,* you may wish to consider protecting your employees, particularly those who travel abroad to destinations with high levels of pneumococcal infections, such as India, China and Vietnam**.
