Update From the September 2022 Meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices
Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), a group of medical and public health experts that provides expert advice to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), normally meets three times per year to develop US vaccine recommendations. The ACIP increased their meeting frequency over the past 2.5 years to address vaccine-related issues during the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic. They met to discuss updating COVID-19 booster dose recommendations on September 1, 2022 recommending use of new bivalent Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) booster vaccines which include equal amounts of ancestral and Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variant mRNA that encodes the spike protein.
