Streptococcus pneumoniae causes life‐threatening diseases including meningitis, pneumonia and sepsis. Existing glycoconjugate vaccines based on purified capsular polysaccharides are widely used and help to prevent millions of deaths every year. Herein, the total syntheses of oligosaccharides resembling portions of the S. pneumoniae serotype 7F (ST7F) capsular polysaccharide repeating unit are reported. To define minimal glycan epitopes, glycan microarrays containing the synthetic oligosaccharides were used to screen human reference serum and revealed that both side chains of the ST7F play a key role in antigen recognition. The identification of protective minimal epitopes is vital to design efficient semi‐ and fully‐synthetic glycoconjugate vaccines.
