Vaccination can be regarded as one of the safest modes of medical management, owing to the fact that it’s constructed for administration to perfectly healthy individuals [1]. Due to the historical evidence to strengthen its claim, and the eradication of certain diseases following universal vaccination, vaccines have been accepted all over the globe. However, there do remain individuals or groups and sects, who harbour aversion to vaccines; who either completely refuse the administration of vaccines or who practice considerably delayed administration, owing to their scepticism. Studies have often reflected bleak confidence of the general population in the procedure and outcome of vaccination, even in those compliant with the prevalent norms of vaccination.
