Abstract

Despite increasing vaccine coverage level, Indonesia is still in distance with target of Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) (1). In 2012, Indonesia was the third place of countries with most unvaccinated infants with three doses of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP3) (2) and the achievement on the National Immunization Program (NIP) was not evenly distributed across provinces-only eight provinces reached the national target of Universal Coverage Level (UCI) (1). Aceh province, the westernmost province of Indonesia, rank in the bottom six of UCI status in 2013 (1) and the lowest district in Aceh only gained 39% of UCI, far from national target of 100% (3). Therefore, understanding of factors that hinder or support the likeliness of vaccination among Acehnese inhabitants is an important sight for vaccination strategy in the future.
