Influence of Pneumococcal Vaccines and Respiratory Syncytial Virus on Alveolar Pneumonia, Israel
Figure 1. . PCV uptake and decline in RCAP incidence 2004–05 through 2011–12, southern Israel. A) Uptake of >2 PCV doses among Bedouin and Jewish children 6–17 months of age. Black line indicates overall uptake; shaded areas show the proportion receiving >2 doses of PCV7 (light gray), >2 doses of PCV13 (dark gray), or >1 doses of PCV7 and 1 dose of PCV13 (medium gray). Dotted line indicates 85% uptake of any PCV. B) Unadjusted incidence rate ratio for RCAP comparing the incidence in each July–June year with the average for 2004–05 through 2007–08. RCAP, radiologically confirmed alveolar pneumonia; PCV, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine; PCV7, 7-valent PCV; PCV13, 13-valent PCV.
