Vaccines: Recs/Schedules/Child Schedule main page

Recommendations and Guidelines:
2010 Child & Adolescent Immunization Schedules
for persons aged 0-6 years, 7-18 years, and "catch-up schedule"

Changes in the Schedule Since Last Release
Changes listed here are outlined in MMWR with figures, etc.

The statement concerning use of combination vaccines in the introductory paragraph has been changed to reflect the revised ACIP recommendation on this issue.
The last dose in the inactivated poliovirus vaccine series is now recommended to be administered on or after the 4th birthday and at least 6 months since the previous dose. In addition, if 4 doses are administered prior to age 4 years an additional (5th) dose should be administered at age 4 through 6 years.
The hepatitis A footnote has been revised to allow vaccination of children older than 23 months for whom immunity against hepatitis A is desired.
Revaccination with meningococcal conjugate vaccine is now recommended for children who remain at increased risk of meningococcal disease after 3 years (if the first dose was administered at age 2 through 6 years) or after 5 years (if the first dose was administered at age 7 years or older).
Footnotes for human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine have been modified to include the availability of and recommendations for bivalent HPV vaccine, and a permissive recommendation for administration of quadrivalent HPV vaccine to males aged 9 through 18 years to reduce the likelihood of acquiring genital warts.
