  • Pneumonia is the number one acute reason people aged 65 and older are readmitted to the hospital in southeast Idaho.
  • Pneumonia is serious and deadly for individuals with certain chronic conditions and the elderly.
  • This risk can be reduced by ensuring patients receive recommend pneumococcal vaccines, yet Idaho is falling short of the Healthy People 2020 goal.
