Vaccinations in Adults Clinical Practice Guidelines 

Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Human Papillomavirus vaccine

Catch-up immunization is recommended in persons aged 15-26 years, with a previous cutoff age in men was 21 years.

Influenza vaccine

For the influenza season, routine influenza vaccination is recommended in all persons aged 6 months or older who have no contraindications. 

Hepatitis A

Routine hepatitis A vaccination is recommended in all persons aged 1 year or older who have HIV infection, regardless of their level of immune suppression.

Hepatitis B

For hepatitis B vaccine, pregnant women at risk for infection or an adverse infection-related pregnancy outcome have been added to the list of vulnerable patients who may benefit from vaccination.

Persons aged 10 years or older who have complement deficiency, who use a complement inhibitor, who have asplenia, or who are microbiologists should receive a meningitis B vaccine dose 1 year following completion of a primary series. 

Afterward, they should receive booster doses every 2-3 years as long as their risk is elevated.

Td/Tdap Vaccine

Either the diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (Td) or tetanus and reduced diphtheria toxoids/acellular pertussis (Tdap vaccine) be administered in cases in which just the Td vaccine is currently recommended; that is, for the 10-year booster shot and for tetanus prophylaxis in wound management and the catch-up immunization schedule, including for pregnant women.


Vaccination against varicella should be considered in individuals with HIV infection who do not have evidence of varicella immunity and whose CD4 counts are ≥200 cells/µL.
