Description:Notice to readers -- Air-bag associated fatal injuries to infants and children riding in front passenger seats -- United States.
Because of the furlough of U.S. government employees, CDC has restricted its activities to responses to emergencies and other public health matters of extreme urgency. Therefore, this issue of MMWR contains only one report with immediate public health implications. This report includes measures for preventing serious injuries and death in children as the result of deployment of air bags in vehicles in which children have been improperly restrained or seated; these measures should be implemented immediately to decrease the risk for children, particularly during the holiday period of increased travel. Other reports of public health importance and findings from the ongoing National Notifiable Disease Surveillance System will be published at a later date. Printed versions of this issue also will be available to CDC’s subscribers at a later date.
