Mekonnen ZA, Gelaye KA, Were MC, Tilahun B. Timely completion of vaccination and its determinants among children in northwest, Ethiopia: a multilevel analysis. BMC public health. 2020 Jun 11;20(20). 908 p. PMID: 32527248 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC7291496
Timely vaccination is key to prevent unnecessary childhood mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases. Despite the substantial efforts to improve vaccination completeness, the effort towards timeliness of vaccination is limited with non-attendance and delays to vaccination appointments remaining a big challenge in developing countries. There is also a limited evidence on timeliness of vaccination. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the magnitude and associated factors for timely completion of vaccination among children in Gondar city administration, north-west, Ethiopia.
