ABSTRACT
Three thousand six hundred and twenty four mothers selected from100 villages randomly chosen from 60 UIP districts were interviewed. Mothers of fully immunized children were better educated, of a higher social class and were willing to actively seek immunization than mothers of partially and non-immunized children. The source of information was generally a health facility. The strategy of outreach services would benefit the poor and ill-informed mothers to have their children fully immunized.
