Severity

Pneumococcal pneumonia symptoms can be serious. Certain symptoms, like cough and fatigue, may last for weeks, or longer.
 
In some cases, pneumococcal pneumonia can lead to hospitalization and be life-threatening. So it’s the kind of illness that you shouldn’t ignore.

It can take weeks
before you feel
like yourself
again.
Even then,
the fatigue can
make it hard to get
through the day.
