The study was designed to find out the socio-demographic correlates of mothers’ adoption of routine immunization services in Jalingo L.G.A, Taraba State. To achieve the purpose of the study, eleven objectives were formulated, eleven corresponding research questions were posed and nine hypotheses were postulated for testing. A cross-sectional survey research design was used for the study. The instrument for data collection was a 14-item questionnaire. The sample for the study consisted of five hundred and sixty (560) mothers with 0-1 year old children who bring their children for routine immunization in the health facilities offering routine immunization in the L. G. A. The data were analyzed using percentages to establish the rate and trend in the adoption of routine immunization services (RIS) and to identify the constraints encountered by mothers in adoption. The Pearson Product Moment correlation coefficient index was used to determine the relationship of the socio-demographic variables and constraints on mothers’ adoption of RIS. The nine null hypotheses were tested using the linear and multiple regression statistics. The major results of the study were that: All the RIS were available and mothers adopted all of them though there was a downward trend in adoption of the RIS ranging from the first to the sixth child; mothers encountered some constraints in adopting RIS and their adoption of the RIS was significantly related to some of the identified constraints; there was a significant relationship between mothers age and adoption of adoption of majority of the RIS; education and religious status had significant relationship in the mothers’ adoption of all the RIS except for tetanus toxoid (T.T); marital status had no significant relationship to the adoption of majority of the RIS; maternal location, occupation and parity had significant relationships with the adoption of majority of the RIS; the regression of maternal age on the adoption of all the RIS was significant while the regression of maternal education, marital status, parity, occupation, religion and location were not significant for majority of the RIS. Based on the major findings and conclusions, recommendations were made among which include that adequate health education about adoption of RIS should be intensified and continuous through proper and genuine dissemination of helpful information using current and local IEC (Information, Education, Communication) materials like posters and banners; health professionals should emphasize on social mobilization and community networking activities and provide incentives to mothers so as to arouse their interest and maintain a continuous increase in the rate of adoption; and feedback information from field experiences and research should be provided to the community leaders to assist them in tackling the influence of the identified constraints to mothers on the adoption of RIS.
