Erratum: Vol. 50, No. 20

In the Notice to Readers, "Deferral of Routine Booster Doses of Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids for Adolescents and Adults," three errors occurred. The second sentence of the first paragraph should read "Aventis Pasteur (Swiftwater, Pennsylvania) is the only major manufacturer of tetanus and diphtheria toxoids (Td) in the United States." The last sentence of the second paragraph should read "Td use should follow existing recommendations for all other indications, which include 1) persons traveling to a country where the risk for diphtheria is high*; 2) persons requiring tetanus vaccination for prophylaxis in wound management; 3) persons who have received <3 doses of any vaccine containing tetanus and diphtheria toxoids; and 4) pregnant women who have not been vaccinated with Td during the preceding 10 years." The fourth sentence in the fourth paragraph should read "For persons with >3 doses of tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine and severe or contaminated wounds, Td should be given only if >5 years have passed since the last dose of tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine."
