The benefits of vaccination are clearly demonstrated by the eradication or enormous decline of the incidence of many vaccine-preventable diseases, Yet the coverage against VPDs remains close to complete but there is a large gap between target and achievement of child immunisation in the country and the coverage of many highly recommended vaccines is still frequently inadequate and children still suffer from diseases that would are prevented. The main aim of this study was to discuss the recognized barriers to the vaccination of children confronting immunization achievement, providers and parents, and the ways in which they can be overcome. Most of the issues underlying limited vaccination coverage among children are because of a scarcity of understanding among healthcare providers and attendants, which underlines the necessity for educational programmes specifically addressed to each of these groups. However, it will take the combined efforts of healthcare systems and providers to pull down all of the barriers. The study was conducted to identify managerial barriers to vaccination of under five children. There is scope for improvement by focusing on the factors which are influencing utilization of immunization services.
