In 1989 and 1990 the United States experienced a measles epidemic with more than 18 000 and 27 000 reported cases, respectively.
Nearly half of all persons with measles were unvaccinated preschool children under 5 years of age.
We sought to identify potential sites for vaccine delivery.
Preschool children with measles were surveyed in five inner cities with measles outbreaks in 1989 to 1990 to assess the children's use of health care services and federal assistance programs before contracting measles.
