One hundred mothers of 'fully' immunized 12-24 month old children were administered a schedule to elicit knowledge regarding immunization. The mean age of the mothers was 27.05 years. Knowledge regarding vaccine availability was good, except in case of measles. A much lower proportion were aware of correct doses and intervals. Only DPT was reported to produce side-effects by a majority. The hypothesis that in a high coverage area, mothers would be armed with more specific immunization information was not borne out.
