In the Notice to Readers, "Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule—United States, 2002-2003," the eighth footnote in Figure 1 incorrectly implied that the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended that adults born after 1956 and without a history of measles vaccination should receive 2 doses of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine. Adults born in or after 1957 should receive at least 1 dose of MMR unless they have a medical contraindication, documentation of at least 1 dose of MMR or other live measles vaccine, or other acceptable evidence of immunity. A second dose of MMR is recommended for adults who (1) were recently exposed to measles in an outbreak setting, (2) were previously vaccinated with killed measles virus vaccine, (3) were vaccinated with an unknown vaccine during 1963-1967, (4) are students in post-secondary educational institutions; (5) work in health-care facilities, and/or (6) plan to travel internationally.
