Distribution of serotypes with regard to 7-valent conjugate vaccine (PCV7) among 107 pneumococci isolated from children <5 years of age with an invasive pneumococcal infection (IPD) during five 3- or 4-year periods from 1991 through 2006, South Korea. *The observed increase in the proportion of 19A (p = 0.005) and decrease in the proportion of 19F (p = 0.008) among invasive isolates were statistically significant.
