Impact of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine on pneumococcal disease prevalence and genetics in the UK

During 2006 a vaccine that protects against the 7 types of pneumococcal bacteria that cause most cases of severe pneumococcal disease – meningitis, septicaemia, and pneumonia – in the UK, was introduced into the routine UK infant immunisation programme. This project involves monitoring of the impact of the vaccine so we can be sure the programme is working.
