We therefore sought to (1) develop a Vaccination Maintenance Score (VMS) and (2) apply this score to determine the predictors of vaccination behavior among infants in western Kenya (n = 245).(#br)Methods(#br)Women in western Kenya were enrolled during pregnancy and surveyed repeatedly through one year postpartum.
