Vaccination coverage in India is far from complete despite the commitment to universal coverage. In this study, the role of health infrastructure in expanding immunization coverage in rural India is examined. This approach differs from prior work in that detailed measures of village health infrastructure that account for the wide variations in health care capabilities across facilities are included.
