VACHB3YR (H63Y) reports the year that children received their third hepatitis B vaccination. This information is only available for children born in the 3 to 5 years before the survey whose third hepatitis B vaccination date was recorded on a card shown to the interviewer.
The complementary variables VACHB3DAY (H63D) and VACHB3MO (H63M) report the day of the month and the month of the third hepatitis B vaccination, as recorded on a vaccination card shown to the interviewer.
According to the DHS Recode Manuals, the vaccination date may be coded as "Inconsistent" if the reported date is inconsistent with the date of birth, the date of interview, or the dates of other vaccinations.
To identify all young children who received the third hepatitis B vaccination, including those identified through the mother's report rather than a dated vaccination card, see VACHB3 (H63).
