The association between completion of primary diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, measles, mumps, and rubella and polio immunisation courses in Liverpool and five sociodemographic factors, namely the child's sex, position in the family, family type, migration into Liverpool since birth, and local deprivation was examined.
Only 68% of children were fully immunised by their second birthday.
The immunisation rate for pertussis was 74%, compared with 85-89% for the other antigens.
Children who had older siblings, were recorded as living with one parent, had moved into Liverpool or who lived in areas of high deprivation were less likely to complete the full set of antigens and individual courses.
