Immunizations & Vaccine Preventable Diseases (VPD)

      Control of infectious disease through vaccination and immunization is one of the major success stories of public health programs throughout the world. Recent years, however, have seen a resurgence of some Vaccine-Preventable Diseases. Research is showing that as immunity wanes over time, boosters are now being recommended for additional age groups. Researchers continue to work on development of new vaccines, more effective vaccines, and vaccine combinations.

    VPD Case Definitions and Investigation

      The incidence of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases are public health priorities and warrant timely reporting, investigation, and intervention. MDHHS Vaccine-Preventable Disease Investigation Guidelines are organized into separate sections for each disease, as follows:

    Section 1: Diphtheria

    Section 2: Haemophilus influenzae (type b) invasive disease (children)

    Section 3: Measles

    Section 4: Meningococcal disease

    Section 5: Mumps

    Section 6: Pertussis

    Section 7: Poliomyelitis

    Section 8: Rubella

    Section 9: S. pneumoniae invasive disease (children)

    Section 10: Tetanus

    Section 11: Varicella

    Section 12: Table of recommended lab tests for VPDs

    Section 13: Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)

    Section 14: Additional resources (web links)
