The summary of recommendations approved by majority vote of ACIP members at the ACIP meeting of October 19-20 has been updated.

  • For hepatitis B vaccine, ACIP recommended the birth dose within 24 hours of birth for medically stable infants weighing >2,000 grams and born to HBsAg-negative mothers, removal of the permissive language to delay the hepatitis B vaccine birth dose, and approved the revised statement.
  • For meningococcal vaccines, ACIP provided guidance on the updated dosing schedules for one serogroup B meningococcal vaccine, MenB-FHbp (Trumenba). For persons at risk for meningococcal disease and during serogroup B outbreaks, 3 doses of MenB-FHbp administered at 0, 1-2, and 6 months; when given to healthy adolescents not at increased risk for meningococcal disease, 2 doses of MenB-FHbp at 0 and 6 months.
