What is Prevnar 20?
Prevnar 20 is a vaccine manufactured by Pfizer Inc. It has FDA approval (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for active immunization for the prevention of pneumonia and invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes in adults 18 years of age and older.
This indication for the prevention of pneumonia caused by S. pneumoniae serotypes 8, 10A, 11A, 12F, 15B, 22F, and 33F is approved under accelerated approval based on immune responses as measured by opsonophagocytic activity (OPA) assay.
Prevnar 20 includes capsular polysaccharide conjugates for the 13 serotypes (1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, and 23F) already included in Prevnar 13. The vaccine also contains capsular polysaccharide conjugates for seven additional serotypes (8, 10A, 11A, 12F, 15B, 22F, and 33F). The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends Prevnar 20 be administered to:
- Adults 65 years of age or older who have not previously received a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine or whose previous vaccination history is not known. If PCV15 is used, this should be followed by a dose of PPSV23.
- Adults aged 19 years of age or older with certain underlying medical conditions or other risk factors, who have not previously received a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine or whose previous vaccination history is not known. If PCV15 is used, this should be followed by a dose of PPSV23.
