I thought I had a pneumonia shot, but my doctor has no record of it, what happens if they forgot to put it in my records an I get another shot.

Hello. Thank you for posting.

I don't believe it will harm you, however, you should ask your doctor or pharmacist to be sure.

For adults who are 65 and over and are otherwise healthy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently recommend a one-time vaccination with the pneumonia shot and no booster shots. However, many doctors do give a second shot 5 to 10 years after the first shot.
