Description

For sample children under 6 years old who have an immunization record and who have at least eight DTP vaccines on their record, IMRDTPMO8 reports the month when the person received his/her eighth DTP vaccine. DTP shots are sometimes called diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis shots, baby shots, or three-in-one-shots.

Users should combine IMRDTPMO8 with IMRDTPDA8 and IMRDTPY8, which report the day and year when the person received his/her eighth DTP vaccine.

Users are strongly encouraged to visit the Universe tab for more information on changes in the universe across surveyed years.
