U.S. National Library of Medicine
Semisynthetic vaccines consisting of polysaccharide antigens from microorganisms attached to protein carrier molecules.

Conjugate vaccines induce antibody formation in people not responsive to polysaccharide alone, induce higher levels of antibody, and show a booster response on repeated injection.
