Talking points and FAQs explain that CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended updates to the 2023 childhood and adult immunization schedules, including incorporating additional information for COVID-19 vaccines. This change does not affect vaccine mandates for schools as states and local jurisdictions determine these. Instead, adding COVID-19 vaccines to the recommended immunization list will help ensure access to vaccines after federal COVID-19 funds run out. Children who might not otherwise get vaccines due to inability to pay will be able to receive ACIP- recommended vaccines for free through the Vaccines for Children Program. In January 2023 onward, adults covered under Medicare will be able to receive all ACIP-recommended vaccines for free as a result of the Inflation Reduction Act.
