Antigen literature review for the New Zealand National Immunisation Schedule, 2016: Pneumococcal disease – in high-risk groups

This literature review was undertaken across scientific articles and systematic reviews published between January 2013 and October 2016 to examine this rapidly expanding topic. The aim was to identify who is at highest risk from invasive pneumococcal disesae and to evaluate the role of pneumococcal vaccination of adults and children in these high-risk groups in reducing disease with currently available conjugate and polysaccharide vaccines.
