Mention Nutritional knowledge, personal hygiene and immunization awareness can be gained through nutrition education. In this study, five hundred adolescent girls between ten to nineteen years were selected as samples. In baseline study the participants were randomly assigned to a control and an intervention group and both group had the same number of adolescent girls. In end line, 241 adolescent girls from intervention group and 236 from control group were finally interviewed. This study showed that adolescents who took TT vaccine and who did not take TT vaccine were either normal or malnourished (67.24 vs. 56.77). Adolescent girls were significantly (p<0.05) increased whereas moderate and severe thinness girls were almost less than those who did not take TT vaccine. TT Immunization increased through nutrition education counseling and played a significant role in reducing the thinness among the adolescent girls. In compare with those did not take TT vaccine, nutrition education also appreciably contributed on vaccination coverage between control and intervention group (28.8 to 44.0; p<0.001). This TT immunization awareness can be grown up through nutritional education.
