Earlier this year, the CDC released updated vaccine schedule recommendations for 2023. The CDC is responsible for setting vaccine schedules for adults and children. The CDC makes its recommendations based on guidance from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
A summary of all changes made to the adult and child vaccine schedule is on the CDC’s website.
There are a few significant changes to both the adult and child vaccination schedules vaccine administrators should know.
