Errors occurred in this article (doi:10.1542/peds.2008-2823). On page 159, under the RESULTS heading of the abstract, the 6th line as published reads “With standardization for selected covariates, captured vaccination opportunities increased from 14.4% to 18.6% at intervention sites and from 12.7% to 16.3% at control sites, a 0.3% greater improvement.” This should read: “With standardization for selected covariates, captured vaccination opportunities increased from 14.4% to 18.6% at intervention sites and from 12.7% to 16.3% at control sites, a 0.6% greater improvement.”

This mistake was also repeated in the results section. The error occurred on page 163, under the heading “Visit-Level Characteristics and Outcomes”, in the second full paragraph, on the 11th line of the paragraph. As published, the sentence reads: “With standardization for selected covariates, captured vaccination opportunities increased from 14.4% to 18.6% at intervention sites and from 12.7% to 16.3% at control sites, a 0.3% (95% CI: −1.9% to 2.5%) greater improvement.” This should read: “With standardization for selected covariates, captured vaccination opportunities increased from 14.4% to 18.6% at intervention sites and from 12.7% to 16.3% at control sites, a 0.6% (95% CI: −1.9% to 2.5%) greater improvement.”

Finally, an error occurred in Table 4 on page 165 in the first line of results in the last column on the right. Under “Difference in Rates of Improvement, Estimate (95% CI)”, the table as published reads “3.4 (1.4 to 9.1).” This should have read: “3.4 (−1.4 to 9.1). The finding is stated correctly in the text in the first paragraph, 10th line, under “Patient-Level Outcomes” on page 164.
