Kids' Chest Infections Up Since Vaccine

Do the first two paragraphs in this story make sense?

Jan. 19, 2010 - Childhood pneumococcal vaccination may be linked to an increase in a serious complication of pneumonia, a new study suggests.

The proven benefit of the vaccine -- which since its introduction in 2000 has slashed rates of pneumonia, bacterial meningitis, and blood infections in children -- far outweighs this possible risk.

Children are getting pneumonia from the pneumonia vaccine but authorities state that the vaccine helps. Is that pretzel logic?
