Visiting multiple sites for immunization and vaccine coverage levels of preschool children in 3 urban clinics: potential indicator of record scatter?

, : Visiting multiple sites for immunization and vaccine coverage levels of preschool children in 3 urban clinics: potential indicator of record scatter?. Clinical Pediatrics 41(4): 249-256

Record scatter is a clinic-level impediment to accurately reporting immunization coverage levels but may be attributed to certain patient characteristics. We determine the association between visiting multiple sites for immunization and underimmunization among urban clinic patients. After collecting immunization histories for patients aged 3-35 months, caregivers were surveyed by telephone. 159/483 caregivers (32.9%) were interviewed. Visiting > 2 sites for immunizations was associated with underimmunization, adjusted Odds Ratio (95% Confidence Interval)=2.7 (1.2-6.5). An interruption in health insurance showed a trend toward association with visiting > or = 2 sites. Our results support the need for working registries, clinic outreach, and continued evaluation of both.
