Vaccines and Other Immunizing Agents in the Adult Immunization Schedule*

How to use the schedule

To make vaccination recommendations, healthcare providers should:

  1. Determine recommended vaccinations by age (Table 1 - By Age)
  2. Assess need for additional recommended vaccinations by medical condition or other indication (Table 2 - By Medical Condition)
  3. Review vaccine types, dosing frequencies and intervals, and considerations for special situations (Notes)
  4. Review contraindications and precautions for vaccine types (Appendix)
  5. Review new or updated ACIP guidance (Addendum)
