State Laws Prohibiting Sales to Minors and Indoor Use of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems — United States, November 2014

Use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) among youths is of particular concern given the potential adverse effects of nicotine on adolescent brain development. Use of ENDS in public indoor areas also might expose bystanders to nicotine and other potentially harmful constituents. To learn the current status of state laws regulating the sales and use of ENDS, CDC assessed state laws that prohibit ENDS sales to minors and laws that include ENDS use in conventional smoking prohibitions in indoor areas of private worksites, restaurants, and bars.

Updated Preparedness and Response Framework for Influenza Pandemics

CDC has updated its framework to describe influenza pandemic progression using six intervals (two prepandemic and four pandemic intervals) and eight domains. This updated framework can be used for influenza pandemic planning and has been aligned with the pandemic phases restructured in 2013 by the World Health Organization.

MMWR Surveillance Summaries

December 12, 2014 / Vol. 63 / No. SS–13
Heat Stress Illness Hospitalizations — Environmental Public Health Tracking Program, 20 States, 2001–2010

Heat stress illness (HSI), also known as heat-related illness, comprises mild heat edema, heat syncope, heat cramps, heat exhaustion (the most common type of HSI), and heat stroke (the most severe form). CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program receives annual hospitalization discharge data that are used to assess and monitor trends of HSI hospitalization over time. During 2001–2010, approximately 28,000 HSI hospitalizations occurred in 20 states participating in the Tracking Program. The majority of HSI hospitalizations occurred among males and persons aged ≥65 years. The highest rates of hospitalizations were in the Midwest and the South. During this period, an overall 2%–5% increase in the rate of HSI hospitalizations occurred in all 20 states compared with the 2001 rate.

MMWR Summary of Notifiable Diseases

September 19, 2014 / Vol. 61 / No. 53
Summary of Notifiable Diseases — United States, 2012

Health-care providers in the United States are required to report certain infectious diseases to a specified state or local authority. A disease is designated as notifiable if timely information about individual cases is considered necessary for prevention and control of the disease. Each year, CDC publishes a summary of the cases of notifiable disease reported for the most recent year for which data is available. This report presents a summary of notifiable diseases for 2012.

MMWR Supplements

This MMWR Supplement presents data related to disease patterns across the United States and describes recent national trends in health status.
