Responses to pneumococcal conjugate vaccines are demonstrated by 2- to 4-fold increases in type-specific IgG levels.
If you are interested in PRE and POST vaccination testing, please
follow these instructions:
PRE and POST samples should be tested together on the same run to
avoid variation in results caused by lot to lot and inter assay
variation. It is recommended that two PRE tubes be drawn. Save one PRE
serum frozen. The other can be sent to determine the need to
vaccinate. If patient already has protective values, there is no need
to revaccinate and test a POST sample. If PRE results do not show
protective values, send the saved PRE sample together with the POST
