Correction: Recommended Childhood Immunization Schedule—United States, 2000

JAMA. 2000;283(12):1561-1562. doi:10.1001/jama.283.12.1561

Incorrect Figure: In the From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention article entitled "Recommended Childhood Immunization Schedule—United States, 2000" published in the February 16, 2000, issue of THE JOURNAL (2000;283:876-878), the immunization schedule on page 877 was incorrectly reproduced. The column for age 24 months was omitted, incorrectly showing the recommended age range for hepatitis A vaccine beginning at 18 months. In addition, diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP) was incorrectly recommended for children aged 11 years and older. The recommended vaccine for this age group is tetanus and diphtheria toxoids (Td). The correct schedule is shown in Figure 1.
