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 90% or more cases, except for 1993 age
   data for CRS, which were available for 80% 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 vac-
   cination in infants.
** One case with onset in 1994 has been confirmed; this case is vaccine-associated.  In 1993,
   three of 10 suspected cases were confirmed; two of the confirmed cases of 1993 were
   vaccine associated, and one was classified as imported.
