Abstract

Invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) in children with sickle cell disease has decreased with prophylactic penicillin, pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine, and pneumococcal protein-conjugate vaccine usage. We report 10 IPD cases since pneumococcal protein-conjugate vaccine licensure, including a recent surge of non-vaccine serotypes. IPD continues to be a serious risk in sickle cell disease.
