Pneumonia is a lung infection that causes fluid to build up and makes it difficult to breathe. One of the most common types is pneumococcal pneumonia. Young children, older adults and people with certain chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or have a weakened immune system, are at higher risk of pneumococcal pneumonia.
