  1. The impact of college prematriculation immunization requirements on risk for measles outbreaks.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    - To assess whether prematriculation immunization requirements (PIRs) affect the number of measles cases on college campuses.

    Design

    - We surveyed a stratified random sample of 880 colleges and universities to determine their immunization policies and practices and occurrence of measles outbreaks from 1988 through 1991.

    We merged national measles surveillance data with survey data by county to determine the risk for measles introduction on college campuses.

    We used logistic regression methods to estimate the effect of PIRs and assess risk factors for college measles outbreaks.

    Setting

    - A total of 3205 US colleges and universities listed in standard guides.
