Errata & Updates
The Pink Book, 10th Edition
(February 2007)

Latest Entry: 5/15/07

Chapter 20: Rotavirus

On page 301, both the text (3rd pagagraph under "Vaccination Schedule and Use") and the middle slide state that rotavirus vaccine should not be administered "on or after age 32 weeks." This should read "on or after age 33 weeks." In other words, the vaccine may be administered through the 32nd week of age. (5/15/07)

Appendix B

Hungarian has been added to the languages included on Table 1 of Foreign Language Terms. (4/9/07)

Chapter 14: Hepatitis A & Chapter 15: Hepatitis B

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Twinrix® [Hepatitis A Vaccine (Inactivated) and Hepatitis B (Recombinant) Vaccine], for an accelerated dosing schedule that consists of three doses given within three weeks followed by a booster dose at 12 months. The approval means Twinrix is now available on a dosing schedule at 0, 7, 21-30 days, followed by a booster dose at 12 months. The vaccine was first approved for adults over age 18 years by the FDA in May 2001 on a 0, 1, 6-month dosing schedule.
NOTE: The 4-day grace period for minimum intervals can not be applied to this schedule. (4/3/07)
