Diphtheria is very common among young children due to that they are barely born and have low immune defenses.
The disease is common during the winter and spring. It is rare in the U.S, and it is endemic in Africa, South America, Asia, the South Pacific, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe and in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Due to the availability of vaccines, Diphtheria has become rare in the U.S. According to the World Health Organization, there was 1 incidence of Diphtheria in 2012.
