Abstract

We characterized Streptococcus pneumoniae serotype 6D from among previously identified S. pneumoniae serotype 6B strains from Jewish and Bedouin children in southern Israel during a decade before vaccination. S. pneumoniae serotype 6D isolates constituted 6.7% of the presumed S. pneumoniae serotype 6B isolates. S. pneumoniae serotype 6D strains belonged to 20 sequence types that were differentially distributed between the two ethnic groups.
