Captured in an unidentified Latin-American country, this 1989 image depicts a healthcare worker, who was going door to door, conducting interviews in order to find out whether or not the appropriate polio vaccine had been administered to both the children, and adults of each visited household, in order to prevent them from acquiring poliomyelitis. If not, she would then administer the oral form of the vaccine to all residents, who had yet to be vaccinated. In this particular view, she was administering the oral vaccine to an infant held by her mother.
