    Transcript

    00:00 skin and systemic infections, the Staphylococcus and the Streptococcus, diagrammed here. And after listening to all of this, I hope that you'll know the structure and virulence factors produced by both staphylococci and streptococci. You will be familiar with the pathogenesis and the epidemiology of diseases associated with staphylococci and streptococci.

    00:19 You should know which drugs can be used to treat staphylococcal and streptococcal infections and the problems associated with treatment and you should become acquainted with the available streptococcal vaccines.

    00:30 Thanks for listening and stay tuned to hear all about bacteria in your intestines.

    1. If you are an adult and you were never immunized, you should get the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine.
    2. There is one vaccine that can be given to everyone to prevent contracting pneumococcal pneumonia.
    3. There are four different vaccines for children, adults, the elderly, and the immunocompromised, each catering to the particular strains most likely to infect the subgroup.
    4. The vaccines protect against all known strains of pneumococcal pneumoniae.
    5. If the vaccine is given to a child, they still need to receive a booster as an adult to remain protected.
    1. Both streptococci and staphylococci can be spread by asymptomatic carriers.
    2. Both streptococci and staphylococci can result in Rheumatic Fever.
