Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf.

What is Prevnar 13?

Prevnar 13 is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals LLC. and marketed by Pfizer Inc. Studies show PCV13 causes the body’s immune system to create antibodies, which help fight the pneumococcal bacteria.

Prevnar 13 is used in children, 6 weeks through 5 years of age for active immunization for the prevention of:

  • Invasive pneumococcal disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F and 23F
  • Otitis media caused by S. pneumoniae serotypes 4, 6B, 9V, 14, 18C, 19F, and 23F. No otitis media efficacy data are available for serotypes 1, 3, 5, 6A, 7F, and 19A

In children 6 years through 17 years of age, Prevnar 13 is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of:

  • Invasive disease caused by S. pneumoniae serotypes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F and 23F

In adults 18 years of age and older, Prevnar 13 is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of:

  • Pneumonia and invasive disease caused by S. pneumoniae serotypes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F and 23F

Prevnar 13 does not protect against disease caused by S. pneumoniae serotypes that are not in the vaccine.

Pneumococcal disease is common in young children, but older adults are at the greatest risk of serious illness and death. In the United States, there are 2 kinds of vaccines that help prevent pneumococcal disease

  • Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine or PCV13
  • Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine or PPSV23

The CDC (centers for disease control and prevention) recommends pneumococcal vaccination for all children younger than 2 years old and all adults 65 years or older. In certain situations, older children and other healthy adults should also get pneumococcal vaccines.

What doses of Prevnar 13 are available?

Prevnar 13 is available as 0.5 mL suspension for intramuscular injection, supplied in a single-dose prefilled syringe.

Please read the product information and the prescribing information for the full patient safety information and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Prevnar 13 active ingredients

Prevnar 13 contains Pneumococcal 13-valent Conjugate Vaccine [Diphtheria CRM197 Protein]) as the active ingredient.

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Prevnar 13 against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Prevnar 13 to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Prevnar 13 drug interactions

Prevnar 13 can interact with other medications.

  • When Prevnar 13 is administered at the same time as another injectable vaccine(s), the vaccines should always be administered with different syringes and given at different injection sites
  • Individuals with impaired immune responsiveness due to the use of immunosuppressive therapy (including irradiation, corticosteroids, antimetabolites, alkylating agents, and cytotoxic agents) may not respond optimally to active immunization
  • Prior receipt of PPSV23 within 1 year results in diminished immune responses to Prevnar 13 compared to individuals without prior receipt of PPSV23

This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Prevnar 13.
