Pneumonia is a debilitating infection (like a very serious flu) and causes over 172,000 hospital admissions every year and over 50,000 adults die of pneumonia. It can be caught at any time of year.
You may have the impression that it only affects older people, which is not the case as over 1 in 100 work age adults are affected every year.
