Dr. Michael Gabriel, Founder of Gabriel Pediatrics, Discusses the Correlation Between Day Care Centers and Pneumococcal Carriage
Date:1/11/2014

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2014

Dr. Michael Gabriel, of Gabriel Pediatrics, responds to an article published by Healio Pediatrics on December 23, which reports that being a pneumococcal carrier changes throughout age, but can still be a problem within places like day cares.

According to the Healio Pediatrics article published on December 23rd titled “Seasonal pneumococcal carriage rates varied in day care centers,” Jonas Ahl, of Skane University Hospital in Sweden, researched a day care center for pneumococcal carriage in children and parents.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describe pneumococcal disease as “an infection caused by the Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae) bacterium, also known as pneumococcus and can result in pneumonia, infection of the blood (bacteremia/sepsis), middle-ear infection (otitis media), or bacterial meningitis.

The article states that children ages 0-7 are the prime pneumococcal carriers. However, as age increases, carriage rates do decline, (age 2 has a 57 percent carriage rate while age 7 is 27 percent). Seasonal changes also have an effect on carriage rates as well.

Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics believes that people should simply be careful when bringing their children to crowded places. “Pneumococci can spread very quickly. Parents need to take other children’s health into consideration when bringing their own child into a place like a day care,” he warns. “Even though the research doesn’t show the group size to be a main factor, in theory it may have a serious effect.”
