Abstract. This article presents the results of a study of the nasopharyngeal carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae in 76 organized children before vaccination and 77 unorganized vaccinated children in Tashkent. It was found that the frequency of nasopharyngeal carriage of pneumococcus is higher in children of closed children's groups. The disappearance of the most common pneumococcal serotypes after vaccination indicates the effectiveness of vaccination.
