MAIDENHEAD, England, September 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Prevenar Vaccine to Help Protect Children Against the Leading Vaccine-Preventable Cause of Death in Young Children Worldwide

Wyeth today announced that Cyprus and the Republic of Ireland have initiated national immunisation programmes (NIPs) for infants and young children against pneumococcal disease by adding Prevenar(TM) (Pneumococcal Saccharide Conjugated Vaccine, Adsorbed), also called PCV7, to their national immunization schedules.(1) Including Ireland and Cyprus, this now makes 26 countries across the world that have included Prevenar in their NIPs.(1)

"Wyeth, the manufacturer of Prevenar, is pleased to be part of these initiatives and welcomes the introduction of this life-saving vaccine into national immunization schedules," says Dr E. David McIntosh, a paediatrician and European Medical Director, Infectious Diseases/Vaccines at Wyeth. "Wyeth is dedicated to the wellbeing of children and to continuing to work with governments and public health agencies to further expand access to Prevenar to help prevent serious and debilitating pneumococcal infections caused by serotypes contained in the vaccine. This includes facilitating the introduction of the vaccine in those countries that have announced their decision to include Prevenar in their national immunisation programmes but have yet to introduce the vaccine as part of their immunisation schedule."

Pneumococcal disease results in approximately 1.6 million deaths per year worldwide of which up to 1 million deaths are in children younger than five years of age.(2) Pneumococcal disease is the leading vaccine-preventable cause of death in children younger than five years of age worldwide.(3)

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends priority inclusion of the 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in national childhood immunization programs worldwide due to the significant burden of pneumococcal disease and
