Study by Dr. Umair Qazi Dr. Sidra Malik, Dr. Usman A. Raza, Maryam Saad, Dr. Muhammad Fazal Zeeshan, Dr. Saeed Anwar titled "Compliance to timely vaccination in an Expanded Program on Immunization center of Pakistan" has been published in Vaccine.

Monitoring the compliance to timely receipt of vaccinations is crucial to establishing and preventing disease and disability associated risk in children. There is little or no evidence that reports the timeliness of the vaccinations according to the EPI schedule in Peshawar. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate rate of Fully Immunized Children and to report compliance to the timeliness of vaccine specific schedule during the study period in the EPI center in the capital city of Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.

The study reports a low compliance to EPI schedule, and also highlights that immunization coverage is not a good indicator of age appropriate vaccinations.
