Captured in 1968, during a celebration dance, which had taken place after a vaccination ceremony, this historic image depicted Dr. William H. Stewart, former Assistant Commissioner of Health in New York City, and assistant Surgeon General in Washington, holding a young West African female vaccinee. The girl’s mother was in the foreground. This young vaccinee represented the 25-millionth smallpox vaccinee in the West African region that had taken place during the 19-Country West African Regional Smallpox Eradication/Measles Control Program.
