Abstract

We present a large, multicenter, cohort study that aimed to assess bacterial infection rates among febrile infants up to 90 days old presenting to the pediatric emergency department with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection during 2021-2022 throughout successive variant waves. Overall, 417 febrile infants were included. Twenty-six infants (6.2%) had bacterial infections. All bacterial infections consisted of urinary tract infections, and there were no invasive bacterial infections. There was no mortality.
