  1. * Nationally recommended vaccination age is 2, 3, 4, 9, and 9/12 months for BCG, DPT-3, oral polio-3, hepatitis B-3 and measles/MMR vaccines, respectively. These months are regarded as "appropriately timed vaccinations" in the study. Percentages were calculated out of total number of children for whom vaccination date was available, as given in parentheses in the second column of the table.
  2. As obtained from vaccination card (if available).
  3. ‡ Child had at least one dose of either type of vaccine against measles (monovalent measles or MMR).
