Abstract

Objective: To determine the degree of client satisfaction with immunisation services at Primary Health facilities in Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria. Method: A semi-structured questionnaire was administered on 402 caregivers who were selected using systematic random sampling from four primary health centres. The four centres were randomly selected from the 19 health centres using the table of random numbers. Data obtained were analysed using Epi-Info software version 2002. Results: The majority of clients were dissatisfied with most aspects of care given at the Health Care Centres including long waiting time, accessibility of immunisation services, poor respect for clients' rights, especially to their dignity, health information and counseling on their medical needs. Conclusions: The study concludes that client satisfaction with immunization service in Calabar was low due to poor attitude of health care providers, long waiting time and lack of respect for clients' rights. © 2010 Hainan Medical College.
