We identified 53 infants aged 0-60 days with invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) at 8 children's hospitals in the United States (2005-2015). After the introduction of 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), IPD caused by PCV13 serotypes decreased ~30% providing some evidence of indirect protection. However, approximately 60% of IPD was still caused by PCV13 serotypes.
