Prevnar vs Pneuovax

I had the pneumococcal vaccine (Prevnar 13) 10 years ago at age 66.  
What is the recommendation on receiving the newer Pneumovax vaccine?  That is, do I need a booster of the Prevnar, followed by the Pneuovax in whatever time period?
Or do I get the Pneumovax and not worry about the older shot?
