We correct the estimates of the dispersions in the rotational velocities for early-type stars in our Galaxy (Dufton et al. 2006, A&A, 457, 265) and the Magellanic Clouds (Hunter et al. 2008, A&A, 479, 541). The corrected values are (i.e. approximately 33%) larger than those published in the original papers.
Key words: stars: early-type / stars: fundamental parameters / stars: rotation / stars: evolution / errata, addenda
