Childhood immunization programs: an analysis of policy issues.
Immunizations have been among the most successful of preventive interventions. However, concern exists in the United States that recent epidemics of vaccine-preventable diseases and low rates of childhood immunizations may signal the existence of major underlying problems in immunization policy. Additionally, the effectiveness of national, state, and local public health programs in administering these and other preventive services to children has been called into question. This article examines the current state of childhood immunizations in this country and offers a broad range of suggestions for policy modification.
