2)     Adult Tdap Vaccines are now tracked for patients age 18 and older. The HM Topic for DTaP/Tdap/Td Vaccines will continue to track and prompt for pediatric immunizations as before. Adult patients will now continue to be prompted for Td vaccination every 10 years after receiving a Tdap vaccine. See the Tdap/Td Vaccines for Adults Tipsheet for more details.
