Photographed in the West African country of Niger, officially known as the Republic of Niger, this young boy was receiving his 2-drops of oral polio vaccine. The boy had not received the vaccine during the country’s Mass Polio Eradication Campaign, so vaccinators went back the next day on his behalf, in order to make sure he would be protected into the future. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Medical Epidemiologist, McKenzie Andre, MD, MPH, shared this photo from 2013.
