The article provides information on the dramatic success of the bacterial agent 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7). First introduced in 2000, PCV7 is believed to have effectively reduced the pneumococcal disease in most rich countries, and a great degree, made its way to its global introduction as it was recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). However, when employed to nasopharyngeal colonization, PCV7 is claimed to have shown no reduction to the overall prevalence of the such disease.
