Abstract:
A descriptive study was conducted to investigate the relationship between socio-demographic factors and the immunization status of two year old children. Secondary data were collected from records of 105 two year old children enrolled in the Well Child Clinics of a county health department. Results revealed that 37.5% of the sample had achieved complete immunization status. No statistically significant relationship was found between trimester prenatal care began, maternal age, number of children living in the home, neonatal problems, ethnicity, source of care, referral to Walk-In Clinic, and current visits by a PHN, and the immunization status of two year old children. A statistically significant relationship was found between potential for AHCCCS and incomplete immunization status. The variables that demonstrated significant predictive ability were ethnicity, maternal age, referral to walk-in clinic, potential for AHCCCS and neonatal problems.
