Savita, a resident of one of the village of Seva Mandir’s work area, was reluctant in getting her daughter Laxmi immunized as she believed the vaccines to be harmful which would lead to her child to become handicapped. Manju who works with Seva Mandir, counseled her to visit the camp once where she would be able to interact with the mothers of her own age group. On visiting the camp, Savita witnessed the ease with which the other children were getting the vaccination and also got an opportunity to hear about the positive personal experiences of the mothers. The nurse counseled Savita about the benefits of immunization and cleared her misconceptions regarding the vaccines which instilled confidence in her and she agreed to get her daughter immunized. Individual counseling by the nursing team and the community health workers is the backbone of the program as the women have a number of misconceptions regarding immunization due to which they neither get themselves or their children immunized which can pose a serious threat to the health and wellbeing of the pregnant women and children.
