The study used an observational, cross-sectional research design. Fifty women between ages 18-40 were chosen by stratified random sampling method. The population was divided into groups or strata based on clinical departments of DLSUMC. Self-administered questionnaire was used as the data collection method and data was analysed using frequency, central tendency, and prevalence ratio. None of the respondents had received the vaccine. Married women were 0.852 times less likely to have any awareness of the cervical vaccine. However, this difference in the awareness of the cervical vaccine between married and unmarried women was found to be insignificant. The study concluded that there was no significant difference in the acceptance and level of awareness between married and unmarried women aged 18-40. There were no significant associations between sociodemographic factors and level of awareness.
