Abstract

ABSTRACT In 2013, the national target of UCI was 86%, and 20% villages in Indonesia have not yet reached the national standard coverage. High risk Areas were very risky to have lower coverage. The aim this research was to identify the coverage of immunization (UCI) in Semarang City. The research is an observational descriptive with quantitative and qualitative approach. The high-risk areas in this study were Bandarharjo, Dadapsari, Kuningan, Pedurungan Lor, and Tanjungmas villages. The sample was 64 infants from all villages and the respondent were the infant’s parent. UCI was measured using Rapid Card Check (RCC) form recommended by UNICEF. The results of the study indicated that several infants were still unimmunized. High-risk areas meant that the areas status was economically poor, crowded, and bad sanitation. Under-five mothers refused to immunize their babies for any reasons, such as because of religion, preoccupation, and sickness. Immunization was infant’s right. Immunization was very important to maintain the infant’s health from the disease in case of outbreak. Understanding of the infant’s mother was necessary to raise the coverage of immunization in Semarang City. Keywords: Immunization coverage, UCI, RCC, High risk
