Childhood Immunization Schedule for 2016

The American Academy of Pediatric’s 2016 recommended immunization schedule for children and adolescents is similar to last year’s format, but now recommends including the nine-valent human papillomavirus vaccine that was approved in 2014, researchers wrote in Pediatrics. Children should receive HPV vaccination starting at age 11, while those with a history of sexual abuse should receive it at age 9. The schedule also recommends giving the quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine to all adolescents ages 11 to 12, with a booster at age 16.
