This is Doctor Jonathan Temte, professor of Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and chair of the US Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Today, I will provide a lecture on recommendations of the US Advisory Committee on immunization practices.
The objectives of my talk include the following. At the end, listeners will recognize the ACIP immunization schedules. We will review the current ACIP recommendations and include 16 key recommendations, 12 of which are for children and adolescents and four for adults. Finally, we will provide some understanding on the rationale and evidence used for vaccine recommendations in the United States.
The US Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices produces, on an annual schedule, two schedules for vaccines. We provide a schedule for children from age zero through 18 years and a schedule for adults. In addition, there is a catch up schedule for people who are lacking immunization. And also, the footnotes that accompany the schedules. The footnotes are important as they contain a vast amount of information that will help fill in any holes that people have in their understanding. The schedules are available on the website that is shown on this slide.
