|Interpretation: Pneumococcal vaccination does not appear
to be effective in preventing pneumonia, even in populations
for whom the vaccine is currently recommended.

|Trials of higher quality (i.e.,those with a double-blind design and adequate concealment
of allocation) showed little evidence of a protective vaccine effect, regardless of the study population and setting
|countries that have introduced pneumococcal conjugate vaccines into childhood immunization programs can reasonably expect to experience reductions in the incidence of invasive
pneumococcal disease, even among unvaccinated adults,because of reduced transmission of vaccine-type pneumococci in the population
