Interviewer instructions
This module is to be administered to all women who have had a live birth in the 2 years preceding the date of the interview. If the woman has had no live births during the 2 years preceding the interview, you should leave this module blank and skip to the next module.

The purpose of this module is to obtain information about protection from tetanus for infants through vaccination of their mothers. Neonatal tetanus is easily prevented if a woman receives the immunization while she is pregnant with the baby, or receives several vaccinations against it at an appropriate interval before the birth. 

Ask these questions, even if the most recent baby is no longer alive.

---

First, ask whether she has a vaccination card or other documentary evidence of vaccination. Ask to see this evidence and record that you have seen it by circling '1'. If a card is presented, use it to assist with answers to the following questions. If the woman says she has a card but does not/cannot show it to you, circle '2'.

If the card is not available ('2' or '3' circled in TT1), you must try to find out how long ago the last tetanus toxoid (TT) dose was received, and the total number of TT doses the mother has received in her lifetime. Use the probing questions, and record her answers in the spaces provided. 

Women who do not have immunization cards may have difficulty identifying whether injections they received were tetanus toxoid injections.
