    Abstract

    Immunization status is inferior among low socioeconomic groups and ethnic minority populations associated with South Australian primary schools. In general, the status of immunization appears to be particularly unfavourable for measles. Whereas parents reported that 78 percent of children had received some vaccine (or toxoid) since the fourth birthday, and 88 percent in the first year of life, only 51 percent were said to have been immunized against measles. 1982 Public Health Association of Australia
