The author comments on the paper "Evaluation of a Diphtheria-Tetanus-Acellular Pertussis-Inactivated Poliovirus-Haemophilus Influenza Type B Vaccine Given Concurrently with Meningococcal Group C Conjugate Vaccine at 2,3 and 4 months of Age" that was published within the issue. According to the author, the efficacy of Pertussis-containing vaccines is difficult to assess using immunogenicity alone since serological correlates of protection are not clear.
