Background: The annual number of 23 systemic Haemophilus influenzae (SHI) cases in unvaccinated German children aged 3 to 60 months is now exceeded by 33 cases in children vaccinated at least once. Most of these, however, could already have had more vaccinations at onset of disease. How much does delayed completion of the vaccination schedule increase the risk for SHI infections?
