May-2007Continuing barriers to optimum immunization uptake in Nigerian children: the role of missed immunization opportunities and inappropriately time immunizations SADOH AE, Eregie CO. Nigerian Journal of Paediatrics 2007;34: 57-61 Introduction: Immunizations are an effective means of disease prevention. Missed opportunities for immunizations and inappropriately time immunizations have been shown to impart negatively on immunization coverage. Objective: To evaluate the role of Missed opportunities (MOs) and inappropriately timed immunizations to optimal immunization uptake in Nigeran children Methods: Records of 512 consecutive children attending an immunization clinic were reviewed. Data on the date of birth, date of receipt of immunization were extracted. The records were evaluated to determine the presence of MO and the presence of inappropriately timed doses of vaccines. Results: Majority of the missed opportunities occurred during the first visit with 43.2% , 48.2% and 6.25% of children not receiving requisite Continuing barriers to optimum immunization uptake in Nigerian children: the role of missed immunization opportunities and inappropriately time immunizations BCG, HBV and OPV. Ultimately 6.25% of the children did not receive BCG at all. Many children required extra visits to receive vaccines. Only 20% of those who made 5 visits were fully immunized. Full immunization was achieved by 78% of those who made 6 visits. About 4.4% of vaccine doses were inappropriately timed and resulted in 7.2% decrease in coverage when invalid doses were excluded. Conclusion: MOs and inappropriately timed vaccinations remain barriers to optimal immunization uptake in Nigeria. As part of the strategy to strengthen routine immunization, training of health workers with regard to avoidance of MOs and inappropriately timed immunization is needed.Sadoh, Ayeboh; Eregie, Charles
