  • Background: Intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis for neonatal group B streptococcal disease (GBS) effectively prevents disease among infants <7 days old, but there are no prevention strategies for late-onset GBS disease (onset on days 7–89 of life). We describe trends in late-onset GBS over a 16-year period to characterize disease burden and estimate vaccine preventability. Methods: We conducted active, population-based surveillance for invasive late-onset GBS disease in 10 states from 1990 to… CONTINUE READING
