Vaccine-Preventable Disease Investigation Guidelines

Agency: Community Health, Department of

Vaccine-preventable diseases are public health priorities and warrant timely reporting, investigation, and intervention. The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has developed the following guidelines for surveillance, investigation, and public health follow-up
of these diseases. This guidance is intended principally for local health department workers or other public health personnel but may be helpful to other health care providers as well.

The information is organized into separate sections for each disease; they may be viewed
on-line or downloaded. Within each section there are numerous hyper-links to other areas
within the document or to other Internet resources (the latter are navigable provided the
user is connected to the Internet); these are indicated in colored, underscored text and
can be accessed by placing the mouse cursor over the text and clicking the left mouse
button simultaneously. Navigation back to the point of departure can be accomplished either
by clicking the BACK button (if available) or by closing the linked browser page.
