Abstract

New vaccines have been licensed for hepatitis A, varicella, and typhoid. This paper reviews these vaccines and their recommended uses in adults. Special attention is given to a new national policy establishing age 50 years as a time for review of preventive health measures with emphasis on evaluating risk factors that indicate a need for pneumococcal vaccine and the initiation of annual influenza immunization.
