Will having a Pneumonia and Flu Vaccination be effective for my age group since I am allergic to Chloroquin and moreover the Covid vaccination is not ideal for me based on the info I was given?

Dear Goldenwhiskey, the Pneumococcal and Influenza vaccine is strongly recommended for certain groups of patients (e.g. age >65, with other medical conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, ischemic heart dieseases, etc). For a young healthy 54 year old, the vaccines are still recommended, as you can still be susceptible to the infections. Do not worry, as allergy to Chloroquin is not an contraindication towards the 2 above-mentioned vaccines.
