Abstract

 

Immunization coverage in Indonesia continues to increase and until 2016 it reached 79%. The coverage of child immunization in WHO (World Health Organization) countries still reaches 85% of babies worldwide who have received immunizations and there are still 19.9% million babies and children who have not fully received vaccinations and are still at risk of disease (WHO, 2019). Currently in Indonesia there are still children who have not received complete immunization and have never even received immunization from birth. This causes them to be susceptible to contracting dangerous diseases because there is no immunity to these diseases. Data from the Directorate of Disease Prevention and Control, Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) RI shows that since 2014-2016, there are around 1.7 million children who have not get immunized or incomplete immunization status (Kemenkes RI, 2018). The efforts made by the health office still experience many obstacles including parental knowledge, parents' busyness, lack of socialization from the government and culture being factors that affect parental compliance in giving immunizations to their babies. So that immunization becomes less important for the community, especially for mothers, because mothers play a major role in caring for children and make decisions for completing child immunizations (Arifin, Irdasari and Hadyana Sukanda, 2012). To respond to the problem of immunization in toddlers as a form of preventive action to avoid diseases that can be prevented by immunization, the Ubudiyah University Faculty of Health Sciences lecturer wants to provide health education to mothers with toddlers about "Increasing Mother's Knowledge of Basic Immunization with a Health Promotion Approach at Pustu Lam. Hasan, Peukan Bada District, Aceh Besar ”.
