QUESTION for medical people out there…

Coming out of my pharmacy my attention was caught by a sign for pneumonia vaccines. The people dying of COVID19 end up with serious pneumonia, and it’s the repsiratory damage that kills them. So…

Curious. I’ve not seen this asked or answered anywhere.

Could people who’ve had a pneumonia vaccine be less likely to get pneumonia via COVID19 than people who haven’t?

I know there are probably several variables, but on the surface it makes sense. Would surely be great if that were the case. We can’t prevent the virus from sickening us, but can we protect ourselves against the pneumonia that is killing the sickest victims?
