Abstract

One of the most critical issues in immunization recording and reporting is the validity of immunization
coverage data, so the quality of immunization recording and reporting has a vital role in producing
quality immunization coverage. The over report immunization report data is evidence that midwives are
not compliant in carrying out recording and reporting. The behavior of midwives in carrying out routine
immunization recording and reporting can be determined by intention or intention and several other factors.
The purpose of this study was to analyze the influence of age, work period, distance of residence, and
midwife’s intentions on the behavior of implementing routine immunization recording and reporting. This
research method included observational research with a cross-sectional design with primary data through
interviews using a questionnaire that was read to midwives (n=110) and document studies using the Rapid
Convenience Assessment (RCA) form in the community. The results showed that the behavior of midwives
in carrying out routine immunization recording and reporting was influenced by the work period (p=0.011)
and intention (p=0.031).Conclusion: There is a significant relationship between the length of work and
the intention of the midwife towards the behavior of implementing routine immunization recording and
reporting.
