The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices yesterday recommended updates to the 2023 childhood and adult immunization schedules, which include incorporating additional information for approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines. 

“ACIP’s recommendation to add COVID-19 vaccines to the routinely recommended vaccine schedule represents another step in the nation’s recovery,” CDC said. “It’s important to note that there are no changes in COVID-19 vaccine policy, and today’s action simply helps streamline clinical guidance for healthcare providers by including all currently licensed, authorized and routinely recommended vaccines in one document.”
