Introduction of new-generation pneumococcal vaccine will help save lives
Accelerating routine use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines in developing countries
WHO "In an effort to protect more children against pneumococcal disease ― which causes life-threatening illnesses such as pneumonia, meningitis and sepsis ― the Government of Kenya, with support from WHO and partners, is introducing the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine. Kenya is the fourth country to include the vaccine into its national immunization programme in the past three months, after Nicaragua, Sierra Leone and Yemen. The introduction comes less than two years after the same vaccine was introduced in industrialized countries."
