Brief description This surveillance project is a continuation of previous work that describes the strains of respiratory bacterial pathogens in the various community groups - Indigenous and non-Indigenous - across the NT and in WA (urban and remote areas). New vaccines are complex and whilst overall benefits are considerable, there are potential influences on microbiology that may be unwanted. Detailed knowledge of these effects will assist in selection of the best vaccines for use in Australia.
