Doctor :   Vaccines are highly effective against some of the most serious kinds of pneumonia, including measles pneumonia, pertussis (whooping cough), pneumococci, type b Haemophilus, (Hib) and influenza. There are no specific measures that can be taken to prevent most kinds of viral pneumonia, but good infection-control practices, such as hand washing, not sharing tissues, and avoiding crowds during cold and flu season, may help.
