A pilot study of child-parent screening for familial hypercholesterolemia was undertaken in children aged 1 to 2 years coming for immunization. Of 214 parents asked, 200 agreed to screening (94%). Simultaneous immunization-cholesterol measurement was successful in all children. Population child-parent screening is feasible and acceptable when combined with pediatric immunization.
