Immunization Update 2012 Errata
When “Immunization Update 2012” aired on August 16, 2012, it contained a short segment on the use of pneumococcal vaccines in adults. At that time, ACIP had not yet published its recommendations on this topic. Because these recommendations are complex and because specific language describing them had yet to be finalized, we have chosen to remove this segment from the program rather than present information that could be misinterpreted.
When ACIP’s updated recommendations are published, they will be posted at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/ACIP-list.htm#pcv.
Current information about pneumococcal vaccines can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/pneumo/default.htm.
Slides from pneumococcal presentations at the June 2012 ACIP meeting can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/acip/meetings/slides-jun-2012.html
