There's more than one shot out there to protect you from getting serious respiratory illnesses this winter.

Some medical professionals say a pneumonia vaccine is just as important.

"The flu is a yearly viral-type condition," said VNA Home Health's Sue Burch. "Pneumonia is an infection that can come on at any time of the year, there is no pneumonia season."

Pneumonia vaccines last 10 to 15 years and cost around $30. For more information, check with your family doctor.
