Pneumo 2 study (currently recruiting)
Preventing pneumococcal disease through vaccination
In the UK, there are 2 vaccinesSome strains of pneumococcus are present in each vaccine however they continue to circulate in the community and cause disease. This is called vaccine escape. In this study, we want to investigate vaccine escape using strain 3 at 1 month following vaccination. We will also investigate if these vaccines provide long term protection against pneumococcal colonisation 6 months post vaccination. currently used to provide protection against pneumococcus.
