Missed Opportunities for Immunization: A Saudi Arabia survey

Can Fam Physician. 1992 May;38:1087-91.

Abstract

Missed opportunities for immunization were studied at five Saudi health centers. Of 383 children studied, 77.8% were up-to-date with their immunization, 10.2% had real contraindications, and 12.0% missed opportunities. Only 48.8% of mothers were up-to-date. We recommend that immunization be made available at all clinics and that presentation of immunization cards be required.
