    Both districts were similar for immunization status and demographic data.

    Seventy-one percent of the children were missing DTP, 48% HIB, and 44% OPV.

    All children had at least one MMR.

    The mean age of the children was 5.4 years (SD=0.35).

    Potential missed opportunities for immunization were identified.
