Successes and failures in vaccine delivery : evaluation of the immunization delivery system in Puerto Rico.
The objective of this study was to evaluate immunization delivery and determine reasons for low coverage among preschool-age public clinic attendees in Puerto Rico.
In 25 randomly selected clinics, coverage and missed immunization opportunities were assessed in 273 children aged 2 to 59 months, exit interviews were conducted with parents, and providers were interviewed.
Two neighborhoods close to the clinics were surveyed to determine parental knowledge about immunizations, and the vaccination status of children in these neighborhoods was assessed.
Two hundred seventy-three clinic attendees were interviewed.
