Brief Summary:
The main purpose of this study is to use an investigational urine assay to estimate the proportion of pneumonia in adults 50 years or older in different areas throughout the US that is caused by certain types of the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae (also called pneumococcus).

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
1 Procedure: Urine sample collection
All subjects have non-invasive urine sample collection performed

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects who have vaccine-type (VT), ie, PCV13, S. pneumoniae. [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects with VT-type pneumonia by previous healthcare facility exposure status will be described by site. [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
  2. Proportion of subjects with detection of S. pneumoniae by culture, BinaxNOW, and UAD assay will be summarized by method. [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]
  3. Serotype distribution of S. pneumoniae cases by site and across all sites. [ Time Frame: 6-12 months ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
urine serum and potentially blood isolates
