Ever-Expanding’ Immunization Program
Recently it was reported that the Central Government has decided to introduce pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) under the Universal Immunization Program (UIP)1.
The report mentioned that 50% of the pneumonia-related deaths in children below 5 years of age are due to pneumococcal pneumonia. It also said that Hib pneumonia responsible for 25% of pneumonia-related deaths is already addressed by pentavalent vaccine under UIP.
