QUESTION: CAN THIS PNEUMO-VAC SHOT REALLY BE OF HELP IN POS STATUS PEOPLE. SEEMS TO BE A WORTH WHILE THING TO HAVE HAD DONE. GOING SLOWLY WITH THIS NEW ROAD I'M TRAVELING.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

Yes, Pneumovax (pneumococcal vaccine) is recommended every five years for all HIVers with T-cell counts over 200.

I encourage you to stay on the road you are traveling!
