13-Valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) administered as a 4-dose series in infants, and as a toddler dose in infants previously vaccinated with PCV7 elicited comparable vaccine serotypes IgG responses to the seven common serotypes. PCV13 elicited functional responses to the six additional serotypes in both schedules after the toddler dose. The toddler dose boosted immune responses. The two regimens had comparable safety profiles. A toddler dose of PCV13 given in children previously vaccinated with PCV7 should be effective in preventing pneumococcal disease caused by common serotypes, providing protection against the additional serotypes, and supporting the transition from PCV7 to PCV13.
