Objective: To assess the satisfaction of parents with the immunization services and its association with their sociodemographic characteristics. Methods: The study was a part of the coverage evaluation survey conducted using the WHO 30 cluster sampling methodology in the Urban slums of Lucknow district, north India. Analysis for a total of 388 respondents of completely or partially immunized children, was done to assess the level of satisfaction and its determinants. Results: The overall satisfaction was more than 90% in the respondents of both the categories of the children, however the difference between the satisfaction rates was found to be significant. Also the satisfaction with accessibility (p<0.04) and information given by the health worker (p<0.00) differed significantly between completely and partially immunized. Most of the sociodemographic factors were not found to have a significant association with the satisfaction related to different parameters of the immunization services. Conclusion: The dissatisfaction regarding the various aspects of immunization services emphasizes the imperative need to take urgent intervention, for the achievement of goal of universal immunization.
