Prevenar 13, the latest vaccine in the prevention of pneumococcal disease was officially launched on 23 October. The company marked the launch by organizing a charity event where the new vaccine was given to underprivileged children. I was very honored to have been invited to be one of the volunteer doctors for the event.
