  1. Potential impact of linking an emergency department and hospital-affiliated clinics to immunize pre-school-age children.

    Article - En anglais


    To determine whether the use of an urban pediatric emergency department (ED) to immunize pre-school-age children would result in an improvement in the percentage fully vaccinated by the end of the second year of life.


    A retrospective cohort study of two groups: (1) 100 consecutive children (ED group) enrolled at one of two hospital-affiliated primary care clinics were chosen from the ED patient logs if their second birthday occurred in the 12 months prior to November 1990; and (2) 91 age-matched control children (control group) were chosen at random from the same hospital-affiliated clinics' enrollment logs without regard to ED use.

    The health care provided during the first 2 years of life for each group was compared.
