A pneumonia (pneumococcal) vaccine can help prevent pneumonia in the future, even for patients who have been hospitalized for pneumonia. A higher rate may indicate that a hospital provides a higher level of patient care.
About this measure
This measure tracks the percent of patients given the pneumococcal vaccine.
Note: In this case, a higher number is better.
