I am not familiar with these indicators and would not be able to answer your questions further.

If you need to drop any children , you would use the drop command in Stata. ex: drop if penta1==0

However, I still don't think you need to drop anyone. The difference would have a different number of children then the ratio due to the nature of the calculation.
In the end I would think you only care about the ratio estimate. This is already among those that are vaccinated for penta1. Check how many were vaccinated for penta 1 and the total for the ratio, they are the same.

Thanks.
Best,
Shireen
