Standards for Pediatric Immunization Practices
JAMA. 1993 Apr 14; 269(14): 1817-1822.
...Standards for Pediatric Immunization Practices...were developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in collaboration with a 35-member working group representing 22 public and private agencies that had input from state and local health departments, physician and nursing organizations, and public and private providers involved in clinical care and in prevention health services. The standards reflect the consensus of the National Vaccine Advisory Committee and the Ad Hoc Working Group for the Development of Standards for Pediatric Immunization Practices as to what constitutes the most essential and desirable immunization policies and practices in an immunization service. The Guide to Contraindications and Precautions to Immunization reflects the current recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the Committee on Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The standards have been endorsed by a variety of medical and public health organizations and adherence to the Standards for Pediatric Immunization Practices is being encouraged as a key element in our national strategy to administer vaccines more efficiently and effectively to our nation's children.
