Abstract: This study determined the serotype-specific acquisition rates for pneumococcal colonization in a cohort of 1404 newborn infants followed intensively for 3 months. By observing pneumococcal carriage in family members, we were able to determine serotype-specific transmission probabilities between relatives.
