Speeding up universal immunization program

Indian Pediatrics 25(7): 636-641

Speeding up universal immunization program

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.
