Abstract:
Introduction: Vaccination of children has been accepted as an appropriate and effective method of prevention for some serious diseases and a large number of countries all over the world have managed to perform it within their national framework of health programs. However, due to the scope of health systems in different counties, the coverage appears to be of different magnitudes. The present study aims at surveying the degree of vaccination coverage for children under one year of age in the southern province of Kogiloyeh and Boyerahmad. Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive study a total number of 420 infants were selected through random-cluster sampling in 2000-2001. Information about the subjects' vaccination history was worked out using their vaccination cards. The data was analyzed employing descriptive statistics, Pearson test and ANOVA. Results: The study revealed vaccination coverage of 90% to 99%. The coverage was 94.2% for the third term of oral drop of polio, 94.2% for the second term of DPT, 95.7% for the third term of DPT, 92.7% for the third term of Hepatitis, 90.7% for measles and 99.8% for BCG. The most important causes for delay in receiving the vaccines were reported to be lack of vaccines, season of nomads' migration, infants' diseases, remoteness and lack of transportation, rain, season of delivery and mothers' diseases. Conclusion: Vaccination coverage within the national programs and WHO protocols appear to be greatly useful and appropriate. However, to achieve this importance, appropriate planning and teaching both for people and health staff about the promotion and quality of the point is felt to be necessary.
