Although vaccine hesitation is a global problem, vaccine-related knowledge, behaviour and perceptions are especially scarce for poorer nations when assessing how vaccination fear affects immunisation. The study helps to supplement the literature by focusing on Nigerian carers to fill out the information gap over the fear of vaccination.

In 11 communities in Jada’s Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria’s municipal government, the study assesses the association between fear of the vaccination and knowledge, actual conduct and perception among caregivers. In September 2019, the statistics were collected. In order to examine the correlation, we employ logistic regression analysis.

Approximately 15 percent of carers are vaccinated with fear. Such worry is not, however, connected with most socio-demographic features in caretakers. The absence of precise understanding on immunisation, the lower chance of vaccination for children, and an inexperience with the necessity and intention of vaccination in their children are substantially correlating with fear. The results of this investigation correspond with prior studies in industrialised countries.
