In the Royal New Zealand Plunket Society's 1990-91 cohort study, of 3902 children, 985 (25.2%) had fallen behind the immunization schedule by 6 months of age.
These children were more likely to be from lower socio-economic groups or to have mothers who were older, with high or low education, or of higher parity.
The infants were also more likely to be from non-European families, or to have unemployed fathers.
Eight hundred and ten (82.2%) of the incompletely immunized children at that age could be brought up-to-date with their immunizations by a single visit to the doctor.
The most common reason for delaying immunization was that the baby was sick.
