One of the most successful and economical public health interventions ever developed, vaccinations have significant positive effects on social, economic, and health 1 2. Pediatric immunization helps shield kids and adults from serious, curable, and occasionally fatal diseases. One of the key initiatives for Sustainable Development Goal 3 is ensuring universal access to vaccinations (SDG 3). But over 20 million kids under the age of five still lack all necessary immunizations. This is a particular issue in developing countries like Nepal‎3. Complete immunization of young children is a crucial component of a kid's health and wellbeing since it lowers newborn and child mortality rates and reduces the transmission of infectious diseases.
