Abstract

Abstract:

Invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) epidemiology and the potential impact of the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in Fiji are documented. The annual incidence was 26.5 and 10.9 in those aged <5 and ≥55 years per 100,000, respectively. The case fatality rate was 9.4% and 67% in <5 and >65 year olds, respectively. One pneumococcal death and case would be prevented in <5 years olds for every 1930 and 128 infants vaccinated with 7vPCV, respectively.
