Those at high risk for invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) were additionally offered the 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine
(PPV23) at 2-5 years (3).

Serotype coverage rates by PCV7, PCV10, PCV13, and 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine

Since 2002, all Turkish pilgrims have received a quadrivalent meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine
Poster Title: A Phase 3, Open-label Trial Evaluating the Safety and Immunogenicity of a Subsequent Dose of 13-valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV13) in Elderly Adults Who Received PCV13 Followed by 23-valent Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine
(PPSV23) in a Prior Trial
The quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4, Menactra) was licensed based on safety and immunogenicity data showing that it was noninferior to the meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine
, which is 85% effective against serogroup C.
5% from children [greater than or equal to] 5 years of age and 93% from persons of all ages were of serotypes that are included in the 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine
There are two types of pneumococcal vaccine currently available to protect against pneumococcal disease: a polysaccharide vaccine
and a conjugate vaccine.
We have also finalized the clinical trial protocol for our pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine
(PPV) and expect to begin clinical trials by the end of 2014," Mr.
This year's Adult Immunization Schedule includes the 2008 recommendation to use the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine
in cigarette smokers and patients with asthma.
Turkish military vaccination campaigns have used the A+C polysaccharide vaccine
successfully for a decade.
