The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recently released their annual recommendations for routine use of vaccines in children, adolescents, and adults in the United States. These recommendations provide the most up to date information on how to keep people of all ages on schedule with their vaccinations so that they can lead as healthy a life as possible.

The links below provide the most recent vaccine schedules. They’re great resources for both providers and patients alike.
