Meeting Recommendations
June 2021

ACIP approved the following recommendations by majority vote at its June 24-25, 2021 meeting.

  • ACIP recommends 3-doses of Dengvaxia administered 6 months apart at month 0, 6, and 12, in persons 9-16 years of age with a laboratory confirmation of previous dengue infection and living in endemic areas.
  • ACIP affirms the updated MMWR Recommendations and Reports, “Prevention and Control of Seasonal Influenza with Vaccines: Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices—United States, 2021-22 Influenza Season.”
  • ACIP recommends a 2-dose [0, 7 days] intramuscular rabies vaccine series in immunocompetent persons <18 years of age for whom rabies vaccine pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is indicated.
  • ACIP recommends an intramuscular booster dose of rabies vaccine, as an alternative to a titer check, for immunocompetent persons <18 years of age who have sustained and elevated risk for only recognized rabies exposures (i.e., those in risk category #3 of rabies PrEP recommendations table).  The booster dose should be administered no sooner than day 21 but no later than 3 years after the 2-dose PrEP series.

These recommendations have been adopted by the CDC Director and will become official once published in MMWR.
