Do you have a maternal card or mother and child health handbook with your own immunizations listed?
May I see it please?
Yes (card seen)
Yes (card not seen)
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.
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 2 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 MN5), you must try to find out how long ago the last Tetanus toxoid (TT) dose was received in MN6, and the total number of TT doses the mother has received in her lifetime in MN7. 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.
