The World Health Organization (WHO) recently updated summary tables related to routine immunization recommendations. Although the primary audiences for these tables are national immunization managers and related stakeholders and decision-makers, knowing of their existence may be useful for healthcare providers and others involved in the dissemination of vaccines or vaccine information. Providers should realize these are primarily meant to provide guidance to country-level decision-makers and should not replace country-specific recommendations provided by groups such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the U.S.


Updates, additional background information, and versions in French are available on the WHO website.

Materials in this section are updated as new information and vaccines become available. The Vaccine Education Center staff regularly reviews materials for accuracy.
