Vaccine Recommendations: What They Mean for You
As an adult, you can protect yourself and your loved ones by keeping your vaccinations up-to-date. This year, small changes give adults - and young children around them - better, long-lasting protection.

Previous Years

New Vaccine Recommendations for Adults
Rising cases of whooping cough and seasonal flu prompted experts to revise adult vaccination recommendations. Changes in the 2011 recommendations reflect efforts to best protect you and to protect young, vulnerable children you may encounter. Get vaccinated to protect yourself and others.

Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule - United States, 2010
In October 2009, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices approved the Adult Immunization Schedule for 2010, which includes several changes. A bivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV2) was licensed for use in females in October 2009. ACIP recommends vaccination of females with either HPV2 or the quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV4). HPV4 was licensed for use in males in October 2009, and ACIP issued a permissive recommendation for use in males. Other changes in publication.
