Both public and private providers have had to deal with short supplies of the vac- cines that protect against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, and pneumococcal disease. AS A RESULT, providers had to defer certain doses of each vaccine in order to pre- serve the available supply for those most at risk. If the shortages had con- tinued, the U.S. could have faced the very real possibili- ty of a resurgence of many of the diseases that have become so uncommon in the past several years.

Though young children comprise the group receiving the most vac- cines, other populations have been affected as well. Students registering for college also have vaccination requirements, usually for a second measles-mumps- rubella vaccination (MMR), or perhaps for a tetanus diph- theria (Td) booster. If these students were deferred from getting these vaccines, they too should now be able to return to their med- ical provider for the needed vaccine and completed doc- umentation. Finally, adults in general may have been the "victims" of the vaccine shortage, specifically those needing a routine Td booster. Although all adults should receive a Td booster once every 10 years, for more than a year these routine boosters have had to be deferred because of limited supplies. These people should con- tact their providers about returning for this all-impor- tant booster.
