To describe how parents actually use federally mandated vaccine information pamphlets and to evaluate the pamphlets'effects on parents'opinions about vaccination.
A controlled trial of vaccine information pamphlets based on a survey mailed to parents who either received (n=140) or did not receive (n=167) the pamphlets.
Parents of infants aged 2 to 8 months in a suburban, mainly upper-middle class private group practice in northern California.
More than 90% of parents believed that they had enough information to decide whether their child should be vaccinated, even among those who did not receive the pamphlets.
