We appreciate the comments by Drs Zanga and Bar-on on our recent article published in the ARCHIVES.1 We wish to respond to their concerns and clarify some issues.
Conducting immunization-specific interventions within the WIC program includes the assessment of each child's immunization status with a documented immunization history and referral of every underimmunized child to his or her medical home. Any additional interventions are specific to the local WIC program and do not form the basis of the WIC-immunization linkage strategy.
