Recommended use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine

Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) is the leading cause of invasive bacterial infections, bacterial pneumonia and acute otitis media in young children. In Canada, there are an estimated sixty-five (65) cases of meningitis, 700 cases of bacteremia, 2,200 cases of hospitalized pneumonia, 9,000 cases of non-hospitalized pneumonia and an average of fifteen (15) deaths per year due to S. pneumoniae in children < 5 years of age. NACI previously recommended 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccines (PPV23) for use in persons ≥ 2 years of age who are at high risk of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD), but these vaccines are poorly immunogenic in younger children.
