CHDP Providers: How to Report Vaccine Preventable Disease Cases

If you suspect or confirm a Vaccine Preventable Disease (VPD) case among CHDP patients
ages 0-18 years, immediately report it to the Communicable Disease Reporting System.

Why is it important to report these cases?

  • To help identify, inspect and stop the spread of these diseases to others
  • To improve the quality of disease monitoring programs at the local, state, and national level

What will happen if you do not report these cases?

  • The reporting system cannot monitor and track outbreaks to protect your patients, staff and community.

Why are doctors not reporting these cases?

  • They do not know they are required to report
  • They think the laboratory will report for them
  • They think they have to wait for lab confirmation before reporting

How to report:

  • Phone: 888-397-3993 (Monday through Friday 8:00AM 4:30 PM)
  • Fax: 888-397-3778
  • After Hours Phone: 213-974-1234 (4:30PM- 8:00AM)
