Despite the demonstrated efficacy of vaccines, vaccination adoption in Nigeria is low. One of the biggest barriers, according to the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), is a lack of accurate awareness of the vaccine schedule. The aim of this research is to assess caregivers’ awareness of the vaccine schedule as well as their capacity to read the immunisation card. The study assessed caregiver knowledge in 11 settlements in Adamawa State’s Jada local government district. A basic statistical hypothesis testing was used to assess the change in expertise among caregivers before and after responding to the immunisation card. The study used logistic regression analysis to examine the factors that influence vaccination knowledge, as well as the relationship between vaccination knowledge and real vaccination behaviours.

More than 50% of women had a proper understanding of the essential vaccine vaccination plan. The healthcare workers’ experience, however, has not improved since the details were referred to the immunisation card. Carers who recently took their children to the immunisation centre were more likely to be accurate with their programme of immunisation. In particular among people less informed the immunisation card reference has not enhanced awareness of the vaccine schedule. One possible policy is to approach the uneducated public and to increase their awareness to increase the market for vaccines.
