Our publication, “Legislation Restricting Access to Indoor Tanning Throughout the World,”1 reported that the number of states with minimum age requirements for indoor UV tanning increased from 3 states in 2003 to 11 states in 2011. We write to add Georgia and Vermont to that list of US states, to raise the current number to 13. We submit a revised Table with updates in California, Georgia, North Dakota, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont data and corrections of typographical errors in some of the originally cited statute numbers. Finally, we report that 3 additional countries ban indoor UV tanning: Iceland2 and Italy,3 for those younger than 18 years, since 2010 and 2011, respectively; and Iran,4 for persons of all ages, since 2008.
