Immunisation practice in an inner city clinic

, : Immunisation practice in an inner city clinic. Health Trends 21(1): 20-20

The immunisation process in one inner city child health clinic was examined. Only 5% of the children had completed their immunisation courses within the recommended time span. However, by the age of three years 78% of children had received three injections with either triple vaccines or Dip/Tet vaccine and 63% of children had been immunisated against measles. Many children are immunised at ages which differ markedly from those recommended. The implications of this are discussed.
