pneumonia vaccine

Accidently had pneumonia vaccine two years in a row.  Will this cause any problems?  Arm is really sore and has a red rash, but that's all

Hello and Welcome

Sorry I'm tardy to your question. I understand your concern.

No, getting a pneumonia vaccine two years in a roll won't hurt you. You may have wasted your money - but at least you know you're protected.  

Thanks for asking such a great question.

Actually, there is a positive benefit. Every time you get a vaccine TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) is generated, which scavanges up cancer cells.

Scientific Amerrican magazine did an article on this available via a google search.
