Errata: Vol. 54, No. 47

In the Notice to Readers, "Licensure of a Combined Live Attenuated Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella Vaccine," multiple errors occurred.

On page 1212, in the last sentence of the first paragraph, the sentence should read: The titer of Oka/Merck varicella-zoster virus is higher in MMRV vaccine than in single antigen varicella vaccine, VARIVAX® (Merck), a minimum of 3.99 log10 plaque-forming units (pfu) versus 1,350 pfu (approximately 3.13 log10), respectively.

On page 1213, under "Indications and Usage," No. 1, the last sentence should read: MMRV vaccine can reduce the number of injections when administered to children aged 12 months--12 years for whom 1) the first doses of MMR and varicella vaccines are indicated and 2) the second dose of MMR and either the first or second dose (e.g., during a varicella outbreak) of varicella vaccine are indicated. MMRV vaccine is administered subcutaneously as a single 0.5-mL dose.

On page 1214, in Reference 8, the Internet address should read: http://www.cdc.gov/nip/vaccine/varicella/varicella_acip_recs.pdf.
