The CDC has published their updated pediatric and adultimmunization schedules for 2022. This year’s updates include:
New pneumococcal recommendation for all adults 65+ and ages 19-64 with certain underlying medical conditions. One dose PCV15 or 1 dose PCV20. If PCV15 is used, this should be followed by a dose of PPSV23 given at least 1 year after the PCV15 dose.
Adult HepB vaccine is universally recommended for all adults aged 19 through 59 years, and the 2-, 3-, or 4- dose regimens are listed.
HPV vaccination is recommended by the CDC for 11-12 year-olds, starting the 2-dose series as young as age 9. The AAP also recommends starting this vaccine at age 9 for several reasons, including more scheduling flexibility with no known downside and a retrospective study that showed adolescents who started the HPV vaccine series at age 9 or 10 were 22 times more likely to complete the two-dose series by age 15 than those who initiated the series at age 11 or 12 (St. Sauver JL, et al. Prev Med. 2016;89:327-333).
