Quarterly Immunization Table

To track progess toward achieving the goals of the Childhood Immunization Initiative (CII), CDC publishes quarterly a tabular summary (Table_1) of the number of cases of nationally notifiable 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 1996 are final; data for 1997 are provisional.
+  For 1996 and 1997, age data were available for >=97% cases.
&  Invasive disease; H. influenzae serotype is not routinely reported to the National Notifiable Diseases
   Surveillance System. Of 183 cases among children aged <5 years, serotype was reported for 97 cases,
   and of those, 39 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.
** Five suspected cases with onset in 1996 have been confirmed; all were vaccine-associated. Two cases
   with onset in 1997 are under investigation.
