Immunology What does the Pneumococcal vaccine do?

A 65-year-old male presents for a routine visit and you recommend pneumococcal vaccination (23-valent polysaccharide vaccine, Pneumovax). Your patient asks what the vaccine is supposed to do.
According to the best available evidence, you are able to say:
A) “This vaccine will reduce your risk of pneumococcal bacteremia.”
B) “This vaccine will reduce your risk of pneumococcal pneumonia.”
C) “This vaccine will reduce your risk of all types of pneumonia.”
D) “This vaccine will reduce your risk of death from influenza.”
