Prevnar 13 ™ - Pneumococcal 13-valent conjugate vaccine Summary Prevnar 13™ is the successor to the previously-marketed Prevnar® and is used in patients as young as 6 weeks. Prevnar 13™ contains an additional 6 serotypes of Streptococcus pneumoniae, compared to the 7 serotypes provided in the original Prevnar ® formulation. The CDC has announced that young children appear to be at increased risk of febrile seizures when given the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV 13) at the same time as the inactivated influenza virus vaccine (TIV). The risk appears to be greatest from ages months. Because febrile seizures are typically benign and occur in 2% to 5% of all young children, the ACIP does not recommend a delay in administration of either vaccine or altering the vaccine schedule in any manner due to the potential risk of infection.
