Identifying socioeconomic factors affecting immunization status may provide the insight to facilitate the development of effective strategies and policies to reduce the number of incomplete immunizations among children, therefore decreasing child mortality and morbidity. This study, conducted from October to November 2018, aimed to identify socioeconomic factors influencing immunization status in under-five children in Tanah Tinggi, Johar Baru, Central Jakarta. A total of 237 subjects were recruited to participate in this study. The prevalence of complete immunization status was 84.8%. Most cases of incomplete immunization were found among children aged 12–23 months. Significant socioeconomic determinants for complete immunization status were age group, families of one to two children (odds ratio [OR]= 2.85; 95% confidence interval[CI]: 1.29 to 6.33), and highly educated mothers (OR = 2.72; 95% CI: 1.24 to 5.96). Multidisciplinary approach to intervene these risk factors could be effective for decreasing the number of incomplete immunizations.
