The coverage of complete basic immunization in Central Java decreased from 100.7%, 93.4%, and 97.2% during 2013-2015, as the number of measles cases increased from 32, 308 and 576. The aim of this research was to analyze the coverage of immunization in Semarang City, Brebes District, and Surakarta City of Central Java Province. The observational descriptive with quantitative and qualitative approach was conducted using of 877 infant samples from all districts and the respondents were the parent of the infants .The instrument used to measure was Rapid Card Check (RCC) recommended by UNICEF. The results of the study indicated that several infants were still unimmunized. The reasons why most often children raised by mothers not immunize their baby were due to sick children, busy parents working, and religious factors (haram). Immunization is a measure to maintain the infant’s health from the disease. It is very important to develop the maternal understanding to increase immunization coverage in three districts.
