Arrow Refer to the ACIP from the CDC

The most authentic reference when it comes to vaccination protocol and scheduling in USA is the ACIP recommendations from CDC.

This is the link to their website

This is the link to their latest 2011 Child Immunization Recommendation

This is the link to their latest 2011 Adult Immunization Recommendation

If a USMLE question is going to be checked against anything, then it will certainly be the ACIP recommendation.
