Rates of invasive Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) disease in children decreased very rapidly after licensure of Hib conjugate vaccines.
A role for a vaccine-related reduction in nasopharyngeal carriage of Hib has been suggested.
We studied oropharyngeal carriage of Hib and vaccination rates in a population of 2- to 5- year-old children in metropolitan Atlanta.
Among 584 children 75% were vaccinated with an Hib conjugate vaccine, 17% had not been vaccinated and 8% had no vaccination records available.
Forty-one percent of the children were colonized with H. influenzae.
One child was colonized with Hib.
