Description:
The introduction of Hâ Flu and Pneumococcal into the childhood immunisation programme has led to a significant reduction in the incidence of bacterial meningitis. The impact on childhood pneumonia is more difficult to quantify due to its multiple aetiology and its diagnostic challenges. Causation of pneumonia in children has to rely on indirect methods including blood cultures, and analysis of respiratory tract secretions.
