Immunization is a process whereby an individual, especially a young child below the age of six, is made resistant against infectious diseases. Immunization is usually done through the administration of some medicine commonly known as vaccines. Vaccines are administered in an individual's body through several means such as oral and injection. Vaccines are of great importance in that they boost the body's immunity thus preventing the individual from being infected with the disease later in life.

Immunization is one of the tools that have been proven to reduce the number of deaths in the world drastically. Approximately two million deaths have been avoided annually because parents are informed about the necessities of immunizing their children (Russel, 1998). This number is projected to have increased over the years. Thus, with effective medical support from organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the immunization processes can reach the majority of the population even the hard-to-access group of people in the society. With improved medical services brought about by improved infrastructure, WHO has an aim to ensure each person receives proper immunization during childhood. Proper immunization will reduce infant mortality rates due to proper health service.

The most important part of the research is to understand the relationship between vaccination and immunization of young children with the improvement in the quality of a healthy life. There is a need to understand other factors surrounding the immunization and lack of immunization of children below the age of six years. In this study, various …
