If you are elderly or infirm, know your risk and protect yourself!
Pneumonia can affect anyone!
Adults aged 65 and over, no matter how healthy they feel, are at increased risk simply due to their age. Find out who else is at higher risk.
Symptoms of pneumonia, like chest pain, cough, fatigue and difficulty breathing, can require hospitalisation. There are over 77,500 pneumonia hospitalisations in Australia each year, and the average stay rises with age – from 6 days for those under 65 to 13 days for those 65+.
