Immunization against Haemophilus influenza, a bacteria that can cause severe respiratory tract infections (e.g. pneumonia) and meningitis in infants is an essential component to any child's vaccination regime. It is responsible for several hundreds of thousands of deaths around the world each year. With a recent trial of routine immunization in Gambia, the incidence of meningitis due to H.influenzae decreased from 200 per 100,000 children to 0, effectively eradicating the country of the disease.
