Outbreaks of vaccine preventable infections have focused attention on 'missed opportunities' for immunizing children.
The immunization status of 520 consecutive children attending Causualty during a 10 day period was studied.
Only 70% of children had received their diphtheria, tetanus, perfussis (DTP) and poliomyelitis immmunization at the appropriate time, 13% had completed the schedule later than recommended and 17% had immunizations overdue by 4 weeks or more.
