DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major cause of meningitis, pneumonia, and bacteremia, especially among young children and older adults. Introduction of 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7) in the US led to substantial reductions in the incidence of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) among the target population of children aged less than five years. To evaluate the effect of continued PCV7 use on IPD incidence among children aged less than five years in eight US states, Reingold et al present the results of CDC's analysis of population- and laboratory-based surveillance data. A CDC editorial note is also presented.
