The recent introduction of the seven-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine has led to changes in the proportion of disease caused by different serotypes. The serotypes targeted by the vaccine have been reduced, and Streptococcus pneumonia serotype 19A is now the most commonly isolated serotype causing invasive pneumococcal disease. This serotype has been associated with antibiotic resistance. The authors of this article conducted a review of cases of invasive pneumococcal disease diagnosed between 2000 and 2010 in Calgary, Alberta, to examine the disease course of serotype 19A invasive pneumococcal disease compared with other serotypes.
