Vaccines and Other Immunizing Agents in the Child and Adolescent Immunization Schedule*

How to use the schedule

To make vaccination recommendations, healthcare providers should:

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