Immunization against disease 1980
Details:
  • Description:
    Data in Immunization Against Disease are derived from official reports submitted by states and other reporting health jurisdictions. Weekly tallies of the numbers of cases of reportable diseases are sent to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as part of the established National Morbidity Reporting System and are tabulated in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) published by CDC. Official mortality data are provided by the National Center for Health Statistics in the Monthly Vital Statistics Report (MVSR).

    Collecting information on individual cases of selected diseases, such as poliomyelitis and diphtheria, is a surveillance activity of various programs at CDC. This information comes through epidemiologic and laboratory reporting channels from state and other health jurisdictions. Surveillance data on cases of specific communicable diseases are a very useful resource for careful analysis of disease trends. Case counts from surveillance activities may not always match the official totals because of the inherently different mechanisms of collection. The reader should remember that the official data (those in MMWR and MVSR) are the authoritative and archival counts of cases and deaths, but surveillance records provide additional insights into trends and patterns of communicable diseases and therefore merit attention.

    Immunization Against Disease represents a collaborative effort of various staff members of CDC. The original version, developed in 1966 in the Office of the Center Director, was based on data collected by the Epidemiology, Smallpox Eradication, Foreign Quarantine, and Ecological Investigations programs, the Laboratory Division, and the Immunization and Tuberculosis branches of the State and Community Services Division. Updating Immunization Against Disease has been an ongoing project since the original version was published.
