Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
Has (name) ever received any vaccinations to prevent him/her from getting diseases, including vaccinations received in a campaign or immunization day?
Questions IM10 through IM18 are asked only to mothers/primary caretakers of children who do not have vaccination cards, or those children for whom vaccination cards were not shown. --- Only ask IM10-18 to obtain the child's vaccination status if a vaccination card or other document is not available (that is, if the answer to IM1 was '2' for 'Yes, 'Not seen' or '3' for 'No'). Describe the vaccination techniques in detail to the caretaker and provide further explanations if needed. When mentioning the vaccines or the specific diseases, use local synonyms if needed. We are not interested in injections for treating a disease - antibiotics, antimalarials, etc. - but only in vaccines. Circle the code corresponding to the response. If the answer is 'Yes', continue to the next question, to start asking about each of the vaccines. If the answer is 'No' or 'DK', skip to IM19.
These variables haven't been used in Final Report analysis, because doubts that child caretakers are not fully aware of immunisation.
