Abstract: As part of a larger face-to-face immunization coverage survey, 1347 families of infants (18-24 months) were questioned on their willingness to pay for a reduction in the number of concomitant vaccine injections. The median willingness to pay for a reduction by 1 injection was E5. The responses fell into 3 broad categories (willing to pay nothing at all, or anything, or It finite amount) and were hardly influenced by socioeconomic determinants. These results suggest that more sophisticated methods are required, and similar analyses should exert a similar level of caution when presenting their results.
