This descriptive study was carried out to determine the vaccination status of children who came to Hatay from Syria by immigration and to determine the factors affecting the vaccination. The sample of the study consisted of 651 Syrian parents, 0-18 age group children, who applied to Mustafa Kemal University Health Practice and Research Hospital between August 2017 and February 2018. The data of the study was collected by using a questionnaire about the socio-demographic characteristics and vaccination status of the parents and children. The data obtained were analyzed in SPSS package program. It has been determined that 47.9% of children were vaccinated whose average age were 5.39±4.36 and 53.5% of them were female. It was determined that 51.3% of the children completed their vaccines in Syria, 90.0% had their vaccinations at the health center, 64.4% had a vaccination card and 42.9% were given the vaccination card from Syria. The highest vaccine given to children was Hepatitis B with 21.0%, and the least vaccine was Chickenpox vaccine with 5.4%. It was found that the most common reason for parents not to have their children vaccinated was the language problem. It was determined that there was a significant relationship between the education and income levels of the parents and the level of knowledge of childhood vaccines, and the fathers knew the completion status of their child less than the mothers (p<0.05). In addition, it was found that the children who are between 0-5 years of age have a higher rate of completing their vaccinations than children between the ages 11-15. Our study results showed that the rate of vaccination of Syrian children coming to our country with migration was low and the families did not have enough information about childhood vaccination.
