Annually, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revises its Adult Immunization Schedule; this schedule is subsequently approved by the major specialty societies representing physicians who care for adults, including the American College of Physicians. The changes in each year's schedule are driven by advances in knowledge of vaccines and vaccine preventable disease. This issue includes the 2010 schedule (1), which is formatted as tables that present age- and medical condition–based immunization recommendations along with important descriptive footnotes. The full texts of the recommendations for each vaccine and the complete schedule are available at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/ACIP/default.htm. Changes in this year's schedule are highlighted below.
