MAIDENHEAD, England, July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

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

This includes accelerating the introduction of the vaccine in those countries that have announced their decision to incorporate Prevenar in their National Immunisation Programmes but have yet to introduce the vaccine as part of their immunization schedule."
