The high prevalence may be attributed to the contribution of family planning programs through various organizations like CARE Nepal.

The COVID-19 pandemic cannot be curbed if people do not accept the vaccine. The findings of the study showed that a considerable proportion of the respondents did not accept the vaccine due to fear of the side effects and doubt on vaccine efficacy. Hence, there is a need to increase advocacy and awareness of the COVID-19 vaccine to gain people’s trust and increase the vaccine acceptance rate.
