The CDC posted the 2022 Recommended Adult Immunization Scheduleon February 17, 2022.

Vaccine-specific changes in the 2022 immunization schedule for adults aged ≥19 years include new or updated ACIP recommendations for hepatitis B vaccine (HepB) (2), influenza vaccine (3), pneumococcal vaccines (4), recombinant zoster vaccine (RZV) (5), and COVID-19 vaccine (available at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/vacc-specific/…). Changes have also been made to the human papillomavirus (HPV); measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR); meningococcal; and varicella (VAR) vaccination sections to improve clarity in the language. In addition, an appendix listing the contraindications to and precautions for each vaccine has been added to the schedule this year.
