Missed opportunities for vaccination in the first year of life at a teachng hospital in Lagos

Research Details

Immunization remains a major public tool in eliminating vaccine-preventable diseases. The first year of life presents the best time for children to be fully vaccinated. This reduces the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases and numerous complications which increase the morbidity and mortality of such unimmunized children.  This is even more important in a teaching hospital where immunization may not be the core service available. A significant percentage of children who present to health facilities are not vaccinated even though they are eligible.  The study seeks to determine the proportion of children with missed opportunities for vaccination and to identify the reasons as well as assess the knowledge of health workers on immunization. The study design is retrospective audit of immunization records of children seen at clinics in the hospital and assessment of missed opportunities for immunization. True contra-indications are identified while false contra-indications due to parents/ guardians and health workers are some reasons for missed opportunities.  Other resosn are health system factors.The study has potential to stregthen primary health care services.
