Changes made at the proof stage to this Research paper by Mark Rozenbaum and colleagues resulted in an error in the abstract (BMJ 2012;345:e6879, doi:10.1136/bmj.e6879). The third sentence of the results section stated the opposite meaning of what it was meant to convey. This sentence should have concluded that if the vaccine does [not “if the vaccine does not”] offer protection against non-bacteraemic pneumococcal pneumonia or the vaccine was introduced concomitantly with the infant 13 valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccination programme then vaccinating high risk people would (more) likely be cost effective.
