Despite the existence of Medicaid and other programs designed to eliminate cost as a barrier to immunization in physicians'offices, referrals to local health departments for immunizations are common.
Many children leave their physicians'offices without receiving needed immunizations.
To determine : 1) the frequency and determinants of immunization referrals to health departments in North Carolina, and 2) the factors associated with private physicians'decisions to immunize Medicaid children in their offices and participate in the state-funded vaccine replacement program.
The 2537 pediatricians and family physicians licensed in North Carolina were surveyed by mail using a 23-item, self-administered questionnaire.
