Author: Noga, David Patrick
Abstract: The epidemiology of infectious diseases in children has changed over the past few decades . After isolation of the viruses that cause polio , measles , mumps , and rubella , vaccines became available , with resultant changes in the epidemiology of these diseases . Varicella , or chickenpox , is one infectious disease that remains uncontrolled by a vaccination program in the United States . It is expected that children will soon be routinely vaccinated against varicella . This paper will look at the effect the varicella vaccination program will have on the average age of infection and the change in the number of cases in high -risk age classes .
