Abstract

We investigated pneumococcal carriage between children ≦5 years old with otitis media (OM) and those without. Non-PCV13 serotypes were common in both groups; 19A remained the second most common serotype among children with OM despite high PCV13 coverage. This is important when considering a schedule with reduced vaccine doses or reduced valency, and the modification of pneumococcal immunization schedule should be followed up closely to monitor the result of protection against pneumococcal infections.
