changes in regulations
Changes in Regulations
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
    • Children at least 5 and less than 7 months of age are now required to have two doses of Hib vaccine instead of three. Some brands of Hib vaccine or combination Hib-containing vaccines permit doses at 2-4 months but do not require a dose at 6 months as described in the 2011 ACIP recommended schedule. This amendment gives providers more flexibility in choosing Hib-containing vaccine brands for their practice.

Changes in Regulations
  • Hepatitis B Vaccine
    • The third dose is now required for children at least 19 and less than 48 months of age. This amendment allows providers the flexibility to administer the third dose of hepatitis B vaccine as late as 18 months of age while maintaining compliance with requirements for child day care entry. This is in compliance with 2011 ACIP recommendations for hepatitis B vaccine administration.
