ACIP accepts proposed updates to typhoid vaccine statement

October 31, 2014

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted unanimously to accept proposed updates to the recommendations for typhoid vaccines.

There are no changes to the guidelines in terms of the populations recommended to receive the vaccine. The updated statement reflects changes in vaccine availability, new data on the epidemiology of typhoid and new data on vaccine safety and efficacy. The typhoid vaccine statement had not been updated since 1994.
