The sample comprised of 320 mothers. Results: 98.4% mothers knew that immunization is beneficial for their children. 37.2% were aware about the side effects of vaccines. 69.2% mothers acquired knowledge regarding immunization from antenatal clinics. 28% mothers have good knowledge about immunization. Conclusion: Ample health education should be given to mothers residing in rural areas to raise their knowledge regarding immunization. In rural areas Anganwadi workers, ASHA etc should play a significant role in bringing awareness about vaccinations and their benefits.
