In young Aboriginal children with new episodes of AOMwiP, Haemophilus influenzae (57%), Streptococcus pneumoniae (34%) and Streptococcus pyogenes (6%) are the major pathogens recovered from ear discharge. In children immunised with pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, there were fewer vaccine type pneumococci and more vaccine-related type pneumococci than unimmunized children. Replacement of vaccine types by non-pneumococcal pathogens was not detected. � 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
