Errors in Byline, Abstract, and Discussion

JAMA Pediatr. 2019;173(3):296. doi:10.1001/jamapediatrics.2019.0061

The Original Investigation “Epidemiology of Invasive Early-Onset and Late-Onset Group B Streptococcal Disease in the United States, 2006 to 2015: Multistate Laboratory and Population-Based Surveillance,”1 published January 14, 2019, was corrected in 3 locations. First, an errant middle initial in the name of author William Schaffner, MD, was deleted; his name is correctly presented without any middle initial. Second, the sentence in the Results subsection of the Abstract that begins “Among these isolates, serotypes 1A (242 [27.3%]) and III (242 [27.3%])…” was corrected to “Among patients with EOD….” Finally, in the Discussion section, the words “multisequence locus type” were corrected to “multilocus sequence type.”
