The study was aimed to evaluate the association between perceived health beliefs among mothers’ of infants regarding adherence to vaccination and behaviour of these mothers regarding vaccination of their infants. Cross sectional Descriptive Research Design was used in this study. The study participants were chosen by Non-Probability convenient sampling technique.

The vaccination adherence were appraised by checking infant vaccination cards.The descriptive statistics was used to organize the data and to examine the quantum of information and inferential statistics was used to determine the relationship. Findings of the study shows that most of mothers 57(49.57%) were in the age group of 26 – 30 years, 44(38.26%) of infants were in the age group of 21 – 24 months, 70(60.87%) of fathers were graduates, 78(67.83%) of mothers were graduates, 114(99.13%) of fathers were employed, 88(76.52%) of mothers were unemployed, 66(57.39%) responded that their infant get sick often and 96(83.48%) had responded that their infants had no history of hospital .Mother’s level of perceived health belief revealed that 60(52.17%) were strongly perceived, 51(44.35%) were moderately perceived , only 4(3.48%) were poorly perceived and that maximum 69(60%) used to take their infants for vaccination to private hospital, 68 (51%) came to know about vaccination through doctor 47 (49%) came to know about vaccination through nurse, 100(86.96%) were well adhered to vaccination and 15(13.04%) were partially adhered to vaccination among mothers of infants.
