  1. Are immunizations an incentive for well-child visits ?

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To assess the beliefs of parents and the visit patterns of their children to determine whether immunizations act as an incentive to use well-child care.

    Design and Methods 

    Medical record audits provided data on immunizations and well-child visits.

    Two questions from a parent interview were used to identify 4 groups of parents : (1) motivated and (2) unmotivated to keep a well-child care appointment regardless of whether immunizations are scheduled, (3) vaccine-motivated and (4) checkup-motivated (parents who were influenced negatively by the prospect of receiving vaccinations).

    The percentage of children with a visit at each age window for well-child visits and the percentage up-to-date for their immunizations at given ages were compared across the 4 groups.

    The 4 groups were also compared for other parental attitudes about immunizations and well-child visits, and on sociodemographic and access characteristics.

    Results 

    Most (73.3%) of the 502 parents surveyed were classified as motivated and 5% as unmotivated to keep a well-child care appointment regardless of whether an immunization was scheduled.

    Only 18.3% were categorized as vaccine-motivated and 3.4% as checkup-motivated.

    For all 4 groups, there was no discernible difference in attendance between immunization and non-immunization visits.

    Attendance in the windows for well-child visits and percentage of children up-to-date on immunizations declined with increasing age. (...)
