dc.description.abstractIn the Netherlands, the recommended priming immunization schedule for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and polio (DTaP-IPV) is at 2, 3 and 4 months of age. We evaluated the compliance with the recommended schedule, as well as its characteristics. We included all infants born between 2007 and 2012 who received minimally one DTaP-IPV vaccination (n = 1,061,578). Infants complied with the schedule if they received the first vaccination between 6 and 9 weeks of age, and the second and third vaccination 2-6 weeks after the first and second vaccination. We examined associations between compliance and several characteristics using log-binomial regression. Compliance for the first, second and third vaccination was 81.6, 88.3 and 84.2%, respectively. Compliance with the total recommended schedule was 64.5%, and increased from 60.1% for 2007 to 68.5% for 2012. Compliance was higher for full-term infants (65.9%), infants with normal birth weight (66.0%) and when both parents were born in the Netherlands (66.8%).
