  1. When acculturation hurts : The case of immunization.

    Article - En anglais

    The study examined the relationship between the acculturation of Mexican American mothers in Texas and immunization status of their children between 3 and 24 months of age.

    Mothers'acculturation, demographic characteristics, and immunization status of their children were assessed in in-person interviews with a sample of Mexican American respondents representative for Texas (n=2193).

    Acculturation was measured with ten scales assessing oral and written language use, proficiency. and preference, music and TV viewing preferences, ethnic identity, place where a person was reared, and contacts with Mexico, Immunization status, defined according to the recommendation of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, was determined from official shot records obtained directly from respondents or, for respondents without records, obtained from their health care providers.

    Regression analysis revealed that acculturation significantly contributed to inadequate immunization status, even when socioeconomic status and other demographic covariates of acculturation were statistically controlled.

    Mediational analysis revealed that acculturation contributed to inadequate immunization through less positive attitudes toward immunization, a diminished sense of parental responsibility for children's immunization, and more perceived barriers to immunization.

    It is concluded that culture-specific beliefs encouraging childhood immunization should be fostered among Mexican Americans.
