NTAGI Recommendations Overlooked Crucial ICMR Data

We thank the NTAGI for publishing its
recommendation on Hib vaccine in Indian
Pediatrics(1) as this journal allows ‘extended peer review’ in its correspondence columns. We are concerned that the technical advisory body has overlooked crucial evidence gathered in studies done by the ICMR while making its recommendations.
