Veena Sharma, Seema Rani


To assess the compliance with primary immunization among children in the age group of 1–5 years and its relation with selected variables, a descriptive survey was conducted in an urban slum of Delhi. Parents of 200 children were interviewed and a checklist was used to assess the immunization status of the children. Data was analyzed through the descriptive and inferential statistics using frequency, percentage and chi-square. The compliance with primary immunization was found to be 76.5%. Statistically significant relationship was found between compliance with primary immunization with both mother and father’s literacy. Study implies that there is a need of more vigorous and consistent immunization drives to be conducted by governmental and non-governmental bodies particularly among parents with low literacy.
