The Standards have not changed. The “Guide to Contraindications and Precautions to Immunization” is based on current (as of January 1996) recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
The National Vaccine Advisory Committee’s recommended Standards for Pediatric Immunization Practices were developed by a 35 member working group drawn from 24 different public and private sector organizations and from numerous state and local health departments (see page 3 1) and approved by the U.S. Public Health Service. These national Standards are recommended for use by all health professionals providing care in public or private health care settings who are involved in the administration of vaccines or the management of immunization services for children. Some of the Standards may also be relevant when administering vaccines to adults.
