CDC published ACIP Recommended Immunization Schedule for Children and Adolescents Aged 18 Years or Younger—U.S., 2019 in MMWR (pages 112–114). You can access all immunization schedules from the KAFP website under Resources A-Z  “CDC Immunization Schedule.”

Each year, ACIP updates the immunization schedules to reflect current recommendations for licensed vaccines. In October 2018, ACIP voted to approve the recommended immunization schedules for 2019. The birth through 18 years recommended schedule has been approved by CDC, AAP, AAFP, and ACOG.

Changes in the 2019 child/adolescent immunization schedule include new or revised ACIP recommendations for hepatitis A vaccine, hepatitis B vaccine, influenza vaccine, and Tdap vaccine, as well as clarification of the recommendations for inactivated poliovirus vaccine.
