Notice to Readers CDC Voice/Fax Information Service

In response to the increased need for and use of public health information by health professionals and the public, the CDC Voice/Fax Information Service (CDC VIS) is available. With the CDC VIS, current and comprehensive information on disease risk and prevention strategies may be readily accessed and delivered by telephone voice or fax, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The information on the CDC VIS has been prepared by CDC to assure the scientific accuracy and has been scripted to relate to the target populations of callers.

During 1994, the CDC VIS responded to 493,000 requests for voice information and 180,000 fax requests, resulting in the transmission of 432,000 documents totaling 1.3 million pages. Suggestions and comments received from callers have resulted in refinement of the system to make it more usable and tailored to the information needs of the users.

To access the CDC Voice Information System, telephone (404) 332-4555; to access the CDC Fax Information System, telephone (404) 332-4565.
