Speeding up universal immunization program


, : Speeding up universal immunization program. Indian Pediatrics 25(7): 636-641

Vaccination coverage assessment along with knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) study of mothers was undertaken in one of the three Primary Health Centres under Re-orientation of Medical Education after implementation of intensive immunization programme. Among the mothers interviewed for KAP, about 54.3% were aware the use of drops and injections and 64% knew about correct age and frequency of DPT/OPV immunization. There was 42.76% increase in fully immunized children in 1987 as compared to 1985. Some of the ways which resulted in improvement of immunization status of children are highlighted.
