Pneumococcal Vaccination is Key to Protecting Cochlear Implant Patients

Cochlear implants bring sound to thousands of people with hearing loss worldwide. People with cochlear implants are at increased risk for pneumococcal meningitis. Despite CDC recommendations that all cochlear implant patients receive pneumococcal vaccination, many patients remain unvaccinated. The American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), in coordination with the CDC and FDA, has begun a campaign to help raise awareness about the importance of pneumococcal vaccinations for all cochlear implant patients.  Pneumococcal vaccination, the “Pneumo Shot”, is recommended by CDC for all patients who have, or will receive cochlear implants.
