Monthly Immunization Table

To track progress toward achieving the goals of the Childhood Immunization Initiative (CII), CDC publishes monthly a tabular summary of the number of cases of all diseases preventable by routine childhood vaccination reported during the previous month and year-to-date (provisional data) (Table_1). In addition, the table compares provisional data with final data for the previous year and highlights the number of reported cases among children aged less than or equal to 5 years, who are the primary focus of CII. Data in the table are derived from CDC's National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System.

Note: To print large tables and graphs users may have to change their printer settings to landscape and use a small font size.

 * Data for 1993 are final and for 1994, provisional.
 + For 1993 and 1994, age data were available for 85% or more cases, except for 1993 CRS,
   which were available for 33%, and 1994 pertussis, which were available for 82% of cases.
 & Invasive disease; H. influenzae serotype is not routinely reported to the National Notifiable
   Diseases Surveillance System.
 @ Because most hepatitis B virus infections among infants and children aged <5 years are
   asymptomatic (although likely to become chronic), acute disease surveillance does not
   reflect the incidence of this problem in this age group or the effectiveness of hepatitis B
   vaccination in infants.
** No cases of suspected poliomyelitis have been reported in 1994; three cases of suspected
   poliomyelitis have been reported in 1993; four of the five suspected cases with onset in
   1992 were confirmed; the confirmed cases were vaccine associated.
