This historic image depicted a former Ghanaian official, as he was receiving his smallpox vaccination using a pneumatic jet injector gun. The photograph was captured during the West African Smallpox Eradication, and Measles Control Program efforts, and took place at the International Trade Fair, held in Accra, Ghana, in February 1967. See PHIL 13239, for a picture of Ghana’s former Chief of State, General Ankrah, as he too, was receiving his smallpox vaccination at the same event.
