ABSTRACT

THE RECOMMENDED childhood immunization schedule (Figure on p 776) was developed as a collaborative effort between the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In January 1996, the schedule was updated to include recommendations for varicella zoster virus vaccine (Var) and for adolescent hepatitis B vaccination.1 Since publication in January 1996, FDA has not licensed new vaccines recommended for routine administration to children, and no changes have been made in ACIP recommendations. Therefore, the recommended childhood immunization schedule remains unchanged as of July 1996.

For detailed information about the use of vaccines, health-care providers should consult the vaccine-specific recommendations of the ACIP, the 1994 Red Book,2 the manufacturers' package inserts, or the Physicians' Desk Reference.3
