dc.description.abstractObjective: To assess the factors associated with dropout in routine immunization among children 12-23 months of age in Garissa Sub-County Research Design: This study was a descriptive cross-sectional study Location of the study: Garissa sub-county in Garissa County, Kenya. Target Population: 7176 Sample population: 216 children aged 12- 23 months Data Collection Instrument: primary data was collected using questionnaire Results: The findings illustrate that there were significant dropout rates within and between the immunization antigens: Pentavalent-1 to pentavalent-3 recorded 13 percent, while pentavalent 1- to measles recorded 17 percent. Mothers had different levels of knowledge regarding the different types of vaccine; measles 91% and 34% percent in influenza. Their biggest fear was derived from possible occurrences of adverse effects. Health system factors such as readily available vaccine, trained health care workers and possession of MCH cards contributed to high drops rate and immunization coverage Conclusion: There were significant dropout rates within and between the immunization antigens: Pentavalent1 to pentavalent-3 recorded 13 percent, while pentavalent 1- to measles recorded 17 percent. Mothers had different levels of knowledge regarding the different types of vaccine; measles 91% and 34% percent in influenza.
