This examination has been performed so as to evaluate and understand that how Gennaro et al assessed parental attitudes as well as barriers to receiving immunizations among young children experiencing homelessness in the Washington, DC area. The work represents an important contribution in a significantly under-researched area in the domain of childhood immunization. A strength of the study is inclusion of questions in the survey that go beyond sociodemographic characteristics and access, eg, concerns and attitudes about immunizations (Figure). The children’s immunization records were used to assess and verify immunization status. Comparing survey results of parents whose children were and were not age-appropriately immunized, they found that attitudes and concerns about vaccines, and barriers to receipt, were not dissimilar between groups (nor were they different from concerns of parents not experiencing homelessness). Alas, it is not easy to accomplish the required visits for immunization for any parent living under these circumstances.
