Review changes to the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices' 2021 recommended vaccination schedule for adults with this short slide-show review.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on February 11, 2021 published its recommended vaccination schedule for adults for 2021.

The recommendations are relatively similar to those made in 2020, but with one vaccine added (the MenACWY-TT vaccine, first licensed in 2020) and one deleted (the zoster vaccine live, removed from the market in 2020). The schedule also includes new or updated recommendations for specific vaccines: hepatitis A (HepA), hepatitis B (Hep B), meningococcal serogroups A, C, W, and Y (MenACYW) vaccines, meningococcal B (MenB) vaccines, pneumococcal, human papillomavirus (HPV), zoster, and influenza.
