08:00-09:30​   Industry Symposium Supported by GSK
The Impact of PCVs on Public Health: Not Exactly What We Thought? 

(Click on Symposium title to read synopsis)

The symposium aims to present the latest available evidence of the global impact of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) on pneumococcal diseases in different countries and focus on the overall protection. The format will enable an interactive discussion between the expert panel and the audience. The panel will address the direct impact of PCVs, not only on the vaccine serotypes but also on clinically diagnosed invasive diseases irrespective of serotypes ("How much does overall protection count?"). In addition, the panel will discuss the effect of the vaccine in developing countries ("What is the current status of vaccination with PCVs in developing countries?") and the future challenges. As a last topic, the discussion will focus on the duration of the effect of the vaccination on the population ("Have we reached the full PCV impact?"). Come and discuss the latest pneumococcal data.
