Applies to: prednisone and Prevnar (pneumococcal 7-valent vaccine)

If you are currently being treated or have recently been treated with predniSONE, you should let your doctor know before receiving pneumococcal 7-valent conjugate vaccine. Depending on the dose and length of time you have been on predniSONE, you may have a reduced response to the vaccine. In some situations, your doctor may want to delay vaccination to give your body time to recover from the effects of predniSONE therapy. If you have recently been vaccinated with pneumococcal 7-valent conjugate vaccine, your doctor may choose to postpone treatment with predniSONE for a couple of weeks. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
