The National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS) was established in November 2017 to provide guidance on vaccinations that persons age 18 years or older should adopt to protect themselves against vaccine-preventable diseases. The overall recommendations for adult vaccinations in the NAIS remain the same since its inception in November 2017. Minor changes have been made to clarify existing recommendations, which are reflected in the updated schedule in Table 1.
Table 1: National Adult Immunisation Schedule
