Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In January 1995, the recommended childhood immunization schedule was published in MMWR following issuance by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Family Physicians (1). This schedule was the first unified schedule developed through a collaborative process among the recommending groups, the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, and the Food and Drug Administration. This collaborative process should assist in maintaining a common childhood vaccination schedule and enabling further simplification of the schedule. This notice presents the recommended childhood immunization schedule for January-June 1996 (Figure 1) to incorporate licensure of varicella zoster virus vaccine (Var) and recommendations for adolescent hepatitis B vaccination.
