The multivariate analysis found that non-compliance with the vaccination schedule associated with maternal and social factors such as not having health insurance (ORa 1.72; p<0.01, IC95% 1.39-2,13), poverty (ORa-1,427, p<0.01, IC95% 1.89-1.71), native mother tongue (ORa-1.50, p<0.01, IC-1.13-2,0), problems attending the health center (ORa-1,213, p=0.02, IC95% 1.02-1.44), live outside the city (ORa-1.31, p<0.01, IC95% 1.09- 1.58), age under the age of 24 as a mother/guardian (ORa-1.38, p<0.01, IC95% 1,186-1,619).
