pneumococcal vacc23

CDC guidelines on pneumococcal vaccination-patients who do not meet age/disease state criteria but receive multiple doses of PPSV23, what could be health implications of this? other than duplicate costs of medication/labor, if there have been cases where a patient has received several doses of PPSV23, once a year repeated in less than 5 yrs.
