Health care-seeking behaviour is defined as the "actions that people undertake when they perceive themselves to have some health problems or have some illness.” People are influenced by various factors when they seek to make decisions concerning their health. This study aims to explore factors that act as facilitators and barriers to institutional delivery, and examines the barriers and facilitators to routine child immunization and vaccination against Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
