Immunization Schedule Information

There are different vaccine schedules for infants, adults, children, college students, pregnant women and other groups. These schedules are developed based on recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The ACIP consists of experts in fields associated with immunization, and they have been selected by the Secretary of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Committee develops vaccine recommendations for children and adults; which includes the age vaccines should be received, number of doses and spacing between doses, and precautions and contraindications.
