    Article - En anglais


    To determine the incidence of invasive Haemophilus influenzae type b disease in children living in Minnesota and Dallas County, Texas before and since introduction of plain polysaccharide vaccine in 1985, and conjugate vaccine in 1988.

    Initially, use these vaccines was limited to infants 18 months of age and older.


    Identification of culture-proven cases of H influenzae type b disease was through systems of active, laboratory-based surveillance.

    The mean incidence of disease (cases observed/100 000 child-years) of 1983 and 1984 served as a basline for comparison with subsequent years through 1991.
