Background: PCV7 vaccination has resulted in dramatic declines in IPD due to strains included in PCV7, but increases in IPD due to some non-conjugate vaccine strains (NCVT). We report on monitoring the effectiveness of 10- and 13-valent PCV infant vaccination programs in Ontario.

Methods: In Ontario, PCV7 was authorized in 2001, publicly funded PCV7 introduced in 1/2005 (3+1), PCV10 in 10/2009 (3+1) and PCV13 in 11/2010 (2+1). The PCV13 program included a catch-up dose for children aged 12-36m who had not previously received PCV13.TIBDN has performed population-based surveillance for IPD in Toronto/Peel region since 1995. Microbiology laboratories report all cases of IPD to a central study office. Isolates are shipped to a central study lab for serotyping. Clinical and vaccine data are collected by chart review and patient/physician interview.

Results: From 1/1/2001 to present, 1036 cases of pediatric IPD (<15y) were identified. 575 (56%) cases were male; 150 (15%) had chronic underlying illness predisposing to IPD. The most common diagnoses are pneumonia (408, 40%), bacteremia without focus (358, 35%), meningitis (98, 9.5%). 93 (9%) required ICU admission; the case fatality rate was 2.3% (24 deaths). IPD incidence was stable from 1995-02. Incidence of conjugate vaccine serotypes (STs) since 2006 is shown in 6 mo intervals by ST category for children aged 6-35 mos (vaccine eligible) in the Figure.

In 2012/13 (12-29 mos post PCV13 program implementation), 50% (14/28) PCV13 ST cases occurred in vaccine eligible children. ST and vaccine data are available for 61 of 65 cases. 33 were NCVT disease; 14 occurred in children not eligible for PCV13; 1 child was unvaccinated (ST 19A); 3 (2 19A, 1 3) had missed doses (2 with 1 dose of PCV13 only and 1 with primary PCV10 series without PCV13 booster); 7 (5 19A, 2 7F) had appropriately received PCV7 series and missed the PCV13 catch-up; 2 (18C, 19A) had received PCV13 at 2 and 4 mos, and developed IPD at 10 and 11 mos of age, respectively. One apparently healthy 5 year old developed empyema due to ST5 after age-appropriate vaccination with 2 PCV10 doses followed by 2 PCV13 doses.

Conclusion: In year 2 after PCV13 implementation, 89% of PCV13 ST disease occurred in children either not eligible for PCV13 or eligible but unvaccinated. The rate of PCV13/not7 disease is decreasing in vaccine eligible children.
