Injectable vaccines for preventing pneumonia in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

There is evidence that vaccines can protect healthy persons against invasive disease (bacteraemia, meningitis) and some evidence for prevention of community acquired pneumonia but little is known about the effectiveness of the vaccine in persons with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The results from seven randomised controlled trials involving 1709 people included in this review suggest that pneumococcal vaccination may provide some protection against disease caused by the bacteria but this needs to be confirmed by further studies.
