Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule


Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) approved the adult immunization schedule for 2007–2008. The committee considered data on epidemiology, vaccine safety and efficacy, cost-effectiveness, and feasibility. Notable new recommendations include:

Varicella vaccine for all adults without immunity

Zoster vaccine for all older people (age, 60), regardless of prior episodes of herpes zoster

Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for all young women (age, 11–26)

Tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine should replace single-dose Td for adults younger than 65 who have not already received a dose (e.g., as a 10-year booster)

Hepatitis B vaccination for sexually active individuals who are not involved in long-term monogamous relationships and for any adult seeking protection from infection

HPV, varicella, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), and zoster vaccines are contraindicated in pregnant and immunocompromised people (e.g., those with HIV infection with CD4 cell count <200); Tdap is not recommended for pregnant women
