Literal question
Has (name) ever been given “Measles vaccination injections” or MMR - that is, a shot in the arm between the age of 12 and 18 months  - to prevent him/her from getting measles?
Interviewer instructions
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. 


Circle the code corresponding to the response. If the caretaker specifically mentions measles vaccine but refers to an injection in the thigh, accept the answer as valid and circle '1' for 'Yes'.
