ACIP approves revisions to 2015 childhood immunization schedules

October 30, 2014

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted unanimously, 13-0 with two members absent from the meeting, to approve various revisions to the 2015 childhood immunization schedules.

“These edits are intended to improve the readability and utility of the schedule; and hence, to translate the respective ACIP recommendations into a language that is easy to interpret by the busy health care provider,” José R. Romero, MD, a member of ACIP, said during the meeting.
