Haemophilus influenzae

Naturally acquired immunity to Haemophilus influenzae type B in healthy Cuban children. 2004, Toraño Peraza, Mem Inst Oswaldo Cruz

The authors analyzed 974 healthy unvaccinated children in Cuba and found that 99.7% of them had natural immunity to Hib by the age of 4-5. Natural immunity to Hib was also found in Finland (79%) and in India ( 80%). Therefore, WHO recommends that this vaccine be introduced into the national calendar only in countries that can afford it financially without taking resources from other important vaccines.
