  1. Accuracy of immunization histories provided by adults accompanying preschool children to a pediatric emergency department.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective.-Because some have advocated the use of emergency departments to administer delayed childhood immunizations, we evaluated the accuracy of immunization histories obtained in this setting by comparison with medical records of inner-city health care facilities.

    Design.-Questionnaires were orally administered to adults accompanying children to the emergency department.

    Individual medical records were reviewed.

    Setting.-Pediatric emergency department at Wyler Children's Hospital, University of Chicago and 68 inner-city primary care clinics.

    Patients.-Children aged 3 to 65 months registering for medical care.

    Of the sample, 98% were African American; 75% were Medicaid recipients.
