A survey of 217 mothers who have children one year to one and one half year of age at the time of the survey, was done to identify factors causing low percentage of fully immunized children. Interviews were conducted in all the thirty one puroks in North Agdao District utilizing open and closed ended questions. Patients awareness of the avilability of immunization services, their knowledge about immunization, and their beliefs and attitudes towards immunization were gathered. Results showed that the proportion of fully immunized children is higher among those whose mothers utilized the health center services; have knowledge of the immunization schedule; have received information about immunization; and believed that diseases can be prevented by immunization (p0.05). This study suggests that increasing information dissemination, strenghthening health education will improve the number of fully immunized children.
