Annual pneumonia-related hospitalizations dropped by an estimated 54.8 hospitalizations per 100,000 people since the introduction of the 7-valent pneumococcal vaccine into the childhood vaccination schedule in 2000, a study showed. Individuals aged 85 years and older and children younger than 2 years had the steepest declines in hospitalization rates, researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.
