New vaccine recommendation: Prevnar and Pneumovax

So this came out in August, but I don't have time to read everything.  There's some data showing that giving a vaccine called Prevnar (which is used for kids currently) then giving a vaccine called Pneumovax (already recommended for all > 65 years old) prevents more pneumonias.  Sounds great!  Except Medicare doesn't cover it yet.....
