TBE Meningococcal Disease Influenza Smallpox

  Conjugate Vaccines

This technology of conjugate vaccine production was first used for Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccines (Hib) and has succeeded in virtually eliminating haemophilus influenzae meningitis in vaccinated children over the last decade. (9,13,18)

A new generation of so-called conjugate vaccines is now available for routine immunization programs against serogroup C meningitis. Conjugate vaccines induce a long-lasting immune response across a wider age range than non-conjugate polysaccharide vaccines. The result is a higher level of protection against group C meningococcal meningitis. A vaccination campaign against group C meningococcal meningitis was carried out in the UK in 1999- 2000, resulting in an 75% reduction in the incidence of meningitis C. (7,8,9,10,13,14,22)
