Abstract
After the introduction of 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) against Streptococcus pneumoniae, public health officials in Taiwan monitored a decline in circulating vaccine serotypes and the emergence of non-vaccine serotypes in children with invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD). A gradually expanded PCV13 national immunization program was launched in 2013 in Taiwan. Here we evaluate the changes in the distribution of pneumococcal serotypes and antimicrobial nonsusceptibility in children during the evolution of vaccination policy.
