Description: Caption:
Captured in 2011, in the country of Chad, officially the Republic of Chad, by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Medical epidemiologist, Katrina Kretsinger, MD, this photograph was created during the country’s polio vaccination campaign. With his head tilted back to receive the dosage, this young child was in the process of receiving an oral polio vaccine, being administered by a healthcare field worker. Though Chad had successfully stopped the transmission of polio, at the time of this photograph, the country had yet to be certified free of this devastating disease.
