Trump also received new immunizations--the Pneumovax 23
against meningitis and pneumonia, and Shingrix to guard against shingles.
Specifically, these included M-M-R II and Pneumovax 23
vaccines, anti-asthma aerosols Dulera and Proventil, anti-hypertension medicine Cozaar, and insulin, the latter of which required "cold chain" conditions.
Subsequently, she was vaccinated with pneumococcus polyvalent vaccine (Pneumovax 23
A newer vaccine called Prevnar 13 offers protection against 13 subtypes of the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae (see box), while an older vaccine, Pneumovax 23
, protects against 23 additional subtypes.
Additional vaccines that may be given to HIV-infected pregnant women include Pneumovax 23
(23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide) vaccine and Prevnar 13 (13-valent pneumococcal conjugate) vaccine .
However, the pneumococcal conjugate (Prevnar 13[R]) should be given at least eight weeks prior to Pneumovax 23
. Depending on the age of the patient, a second Prevnar 13 may be needed prior to receiving the Pneumovax 23
There are two types of the vaccine: Prevnar 13 (PCV13) and Pneumovax 23
PCV13 should be administered to eligible adults in addition to the 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23; Pneumovax 23
, Merck & Co.
The currently available pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine, is manufactured by both Merck (Pneumovax 23
) and Lederie Laboratories (Pnu-Immune 23), and includes 23 purified capsular polysaccharide antigens (serotypes 1 ,2,3,4,5,6B,7F,8,9N,9V,10A,11A,12F,14 , 15B,17F,18C,19A,19F,20,22F,23F and 33F).
The accelerated approval was based on randomized studies comparing immune responses to Prevnar 13 or Pneumovax 23
(a 23-valent pneumococcal vaccine approved in 1983 for children and for adults aged 50 and older) in more than 2,000 patients aged 50 and older in the United States and Europe.
