Description:This image from 1977 depicts a young African-American girl seated on her mother’s lap, about to receive a vaccination in her right thigh, which was being administered by a public health nursing practitioner inside a well-baby clinic in Dekalb County, Georgia.
Well baby clinics are public health, tax-supported medical facilities, which aid in childhood, as well as family health-related matters, usually at a reduced cost to visitors. They’re most well-known for providing immunizations for childhood diseases including diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, Haemophilus influenzae type-b, hepatitis-B, measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella.
