Muhammad Suleman Zahid


Tetanus is a staid disease that is caused by bacteria. Tetanus (lockjaw) results into painful tightening of the muscles in the whole body, which may leads to death in about 1 out of 10 cases. This vaccine works by exposing the patient to a small dose of the bacteria, which causes the body to develop immunity to the disease, the TT vaccine is administered to prevent disease in adults and children who are at least 7 years old. This academic research is basically aimed at measuring the attitude of women towards TT immunization. This research is conducted among women in some of the Union councils of BHAKKAR. This is done in connection with Education, status of Husband, and knowledge about TT. Chi-square test was used to measure the impacts of the demographic variables upon the research variables. To achieve the study objectives, six hypotheses were developed. The results show that there are no significant differences between the responses of rural & urban women about Education of TT. Likewise, the views of local & non local women regarding status of husband are same. On the other hand the views of local, non local, urban and rural women are different. Public health authorities should motivate the spouses about the importance of TT immunization to the eligible women. The study suggests that missed opportunities may be decreased by motivating the H.C.P. This study will also highlight problems/issues faced by the women and suggest few measures for the removal of these problems/issues.
