The results showed: That there is significant relationship between the educational qualification of parents and the Immunisation of Children, that majority of them are aware of the importance of Immunisation, that proximity of the health centres is essential and 62% of them say cultural beliefs may hinder the decision to immunize a child. Conclusively, negligence of duty and irresponsibility on the part of some parents maybe among some of the many factors still affecting childhood immunisation in the Ugo Community of Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State, since not all religious and cultural believes impedes immunisation of children; Health Centres proximity is not much of an issue as many Health Centres are located at close proximity to the community people; Majority are aware of the benefits of Immunization; and educational qualification of parents is also not much of an issue as all mothers who participated in the survey have one form of education or the other.
