At what age should a healthy adult consider the pneumonia vaccine?

I am seeing conflicting informtion on the web about the age at which a healthy adult should consider getting the pneumonia vaccine. Some web sites indicate that it’s age 50, while others say it’s age 65. Does anyone have any information about the age at which a healthy adult should get his pneumonia shot?

    If you are healthy, the longer you wait the better, simply because the vaccine doesn’t last forever, it needs to be renewed at least every ten years. So, 65 or better is the generally accepted age.

    I had mine when I was 18 but I have bad ashma and that doctor said it would be a good idea to have it done along with my flu shot. I think I have to have it every five years.
