Figure 1: Serotype distribution and vaccine coverage rates for pneumococci derived from noninvasive pneumococcal pneumonia. Serotype 3 is most commonly isolated, followed by 6B and 35B. The coverage rates of 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccines are low, while those of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine are comparatively stable, with 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccines falling between the two. The arrow shows a range of the serotypes included in each vaccine
