A new year means it’s time for new vaccine schedules for children, adolescents, and adults. At their October 2022 meeting, members of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted to approve the 2023 editions of the Recommended Child and Adolescent Immunization Schedule. At press time, the CDC director has adopted the recommendations, and they will become official once published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.1
The following tables have been created using the recommended immunization schedules for 2023. As always, visit cdc.gov/vaccines/acip for the most up-to-date information.
