Quarterly Immunization Table

To track progress toward achieving the goals of the Childhood Immunization Initiative (CII), CDC publishes quarterly a tabular summary Table_1 of the number of cases of all diseases preventable by routine childhood vaccination reported during the previous quarter and year-to-date (provisional data). In addition, the table compares provisional data with final data for the previous year and highlights the number of reported cases among children aged <5 years, who are the primary focus of CII. Data in the table are reported through the National Electronic Telecommunications System for Surveillance (NETSS).
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 1995 and 1996 are provisional.
 + For 1995 and 1996, age data were available for >=93% cases, except for 1996 age data for
   measles, which were available for 81% of cases.
 & Invasive disease; H. influenzae serotype is not routinely reported to the National Notifiable
   Diseases Surveillance System. Of 142 cases among children aged <5 years, serotype was
   reported for 32 cases, and of those, nine were type b, the only serotype of H. influenzae
   preventable by vaccination.
 @ 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.
** Three suspected cases with onset in 1996 have been reported to date. Two cases with onset
   in 1995 have been confirmed; these cases were vaccine-associated. An additional six
   suspected cases are under investigation for 1995. Five cases with onset in 1994 were
   confirmed; all were vaccine-associated.
