Objective.-To assess immunization levels for children of employees of a large corporation.
Design.-A mail survey of a random sample of employees on the immunization history of one child per family.
Setting.-US employees of Johnson & Johnson.
Participants.-1500 employees with children born between 1984 and 1991.
Main Outcome Measures.-Coverage rates for recommended vaccines at different ages up to 6 years.
Main Results.-Only 45.2% and 55.3% of the study children at ages 2 and 6 years were current for all recommended immunizations (65.1% and 70.3%, respectively, excluding the Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine).
