Footnotes:

  1. Subsequent Tdacp-IPV booster every 10 years
  2. Babies born to a mother infected with hepatitis B will be offered a first dose at birth
  3. if no history of vaccination
  4. It is recommended that populations at risk and elderly 65 years of age and over receive a dose of 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) followed, 8 weeks later, by a dose of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PCV23). In the present state of knowledge, the CSMI recommends a PPV23 recall only in people at risk, who are recalled every 5 years. Children at risk of invasive pneumococcal infection are also affected by this recommendation: in the absence of previous vaccination with PCV13, catch-up is indicated.

  5. Given the resurgence of measles, all adults born after 1980 who have not received two doses of measles, mumps and rubella vaccines should recall the MMR vaccine
  6. Females only
  7. Catch-up on HPV if not yet done (13-18 years)
