Morbidity and mortality rates in infants and toddlers are remain high with one of them caused by vaccine-preventable diseases (PD3I).This condition occurred as a result of not achieving the target of Complete Basic Immunization and Village UCI (Universal Child Immunization). Parents’ behavior was crucial to whether or not complete basic immunization is given to the infants and to better understand its determinants and influence, a study with theoretical framework is necessary. Observational analytic was used in this study with a case-control design. The sample of 66 parents were taken with multistage sampling, 33 with incomplete basic immunization on their children (case) and 33 parents with the complete ones (control) completed the measure. The data collections were through interview via questionnaire and checklist as well as observation of the MCH book. The results of this study indicated that there was a significant influence between parents’ education (p = 0.026, Exp (B) = 0.279; CI95% = 0.094-0.856) and parents’ habits (p = 0.03; Exp (B) = 0.191; CI95% 0.063-0.575) on the parents’ behavior in getting the basic immunization. Educations and habits were the most important factor influencing parents’ behavior to get basic immunization. A comprehensive health education for parents, especially on basic immunization is needed while simultaneously involving the community to create a conducive situation and ultimately succeed the program to achieve the basic immunization target and village UCI.
