    When you do seek medical attention, your doctor will try to figure out what type of infection is causing your pneumonia, in order to treat it swiftly and effectively. In addition to antibiotics, other treatments for pneumonia include rest, adequate fluid, and supplemental oxygen to raise the level of oxygen in the blood. Currently, a 2 vaccine strategy is prescribed: PCV13 (Prevnar) and PPSV23 (Pneumovax) given several months apart. According to Harvard Medical School, get vaccinated if your doctor recommends it (which will be if you smoke, for sure). If you have a cold or bronchitis and your symptoms don’t get better in a week, definitely see your doctor to get evaluated.
