    • Description:
      "In the 9-month interval since the publication of the last CDC Influenza Surveillance Report, No. 57, April 13, 1960, the occurrence of influenza in the United States has been markedly limited in both distribution and frequency. Sporadic reports of laboratory confirmed cases of influenza A, occurring during the summer and fall months of 1960, have come to the attention of the Influenza Surveillance Unity. No outbreaks for influenza of unusual concentrations or cases of influenza-like disease have been reported to this unit thus far during the present season. Analysis of current deaths due to influenza and pneumonia received from 108 cities in the United States reveals that the number of deaths are entirely within the expected limits of normal for the season in the United States as a whole as well as in each of the 9 geographic regions. During the past 9 months scattered reports have been received of influenza occurring in Central and South America, and Europe. A recent report indicates that laboratory-confirmed type A2 influenza is currently epidemic in England. During the fall months the Public Health Service carried out an influenza immunization program encouraging the routine use of influenza vaccine among specific high risk-groups, the aged, the chronically ill, and pregnant women, in order to reduce the extent of excess influenza-associated mortality." - p. 2
