In February 2010, the vaccination incentive for PCV7
in children began on a voluntary basis.
14] recently demonstrated that after the introduction of PCV7
vaccination, if antibiotic prescribing remained high (particularly cephalosporins and long-acting macrolides/azalides), the proportion of non-susceptible invasive pneumococcal disease due to non-vaccine serotypes also remained high, suggesting that local prescribing practices continue to contribute to local resistance patterns.
The cumulative frequency by age at 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th PCV7
dose is shown in Figure 2.
Two polysaccharide-protein conjugate vaccines are currently part of the routine immunisation programme in South Africa: Hib (Haemophilus influenzae serotype b) and PCV7
(7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine
Overall PCV10-7 IPD incidence increased slightly after PCV7
introduction (CIR 1.
29 Consequently in the USA, universal immunisation of children with PCV7
has been estimated to directly reduce the number of cases of IPD by approximately 9 000 among vaccinated children, while indirect protection resulted in a further 20 000 cases of IPD being prevented per year.

A postal questionnaire was sent to parents, who were asked to provide dates of administration of PCV7
as recorded in the child's immunization chart.
The EIPs conducted a case-control study of PCV7
effectiveness during 2001-2003 and ultimately enrolled 782 case-patients and 2,512 controls (14).
Bunun yaninda PCV7
pnomoni, otitis media ve sinuzit gibi mukozal enfeksiyonlara karsi da etkilidir (5-8).
Wyeth applauds the countries of Cyprus, Hungary, the Kingdom of Bahrain, Republic of Ireland, Slovak Republic and Sweden for announcing their decisions to routinely immunize infants and young children against pneumococcal disease by adding PREVENAR(TM) PCV7
(Pneumococcal Saccharide Conjugated Vaccine, Adsorbed) to their national immunization programs(1).
Children aged 24-59 months should receive PCV7
vaccination if they have or are scheduled to receive a cochlear implant.
